Getting There 

From Anchorage drive north on the Glenn Highway, 30 minutes, to Palmer, a small town to pass through. Follow the Glenn to N. Palmer Fishhook Rd., which will be on the left hand side. You will take this for 30 minutes. Drive parallel to Reed River up to the "Mother Lode Lodge" take the sharp left turn up the switch back, head up the hill for a few hundred yards. Take the sharp right up a single gravel road, And see the sign Archangel Rd. Continue on this past a river and then over a bridge. Reed Lakes is on the right side, about 3 miles from where Archangel Road starts. The trail to Reed Lakes is meanders for 1.75-2 miles to the abandoned cabin. This is where the climbing and bouldering starts. Most of the established climbing is in the basin surrounding the abandoned cabin. The Reed Lakes are actually beyond this, accessible by two different trails starting at this point.
