From the parking lot at the end of the road hike the trail that skirts the ranch and goes down to the river. Instead of crossing the river continue to follow the faint trail through the riverbed hugging the north bank. After 5-10 minutes you'll notice a slight bench above the river instead of just a hillside. If you look above this bench landmark there are 2 drainages that come down from above. One comes down from the right (Smoked Turkey) and Grandma's Chicken is on the left. Both of them meet up just about the time they hit his bench. Some people recommending traversing this bench to get to the climbs but we found that if you just follow the stream bed up from the main river it had the easiest walking. Either way at where the bench ends and the 2 drainages fork you want the left fork. Walk up this for 5 minutes to the base of the first pitch. Total approach time is about 1 hour.
Base of the climb is at 44.1102 N, -109.6440 W.
