Take the Portage Valley Road off the Seward Highway as if going to Whittier. A short 5 minute drive will bring you to a point where the road crosses a small creek. Immediately after the creek crossing take the right-hand turn. If snow levels are high it is common to find a small, plowed parking area. If low snow levels exist take the obvious dirt road back into the trees to the base of a large avalanche chute. The climbs are located to the west of the avalanche chute approximately 250 feet above a small creek. Hike to the base of the climbs.
The Five Fingers are visible from the road. Park in the small clear parking area or on the side of the road. A creek crossing is required to get to the climbs. The creek is usually dry in the winter.
