Ol' Western is a prominent peak that stands out in this particular area of the stronghold. It rises out from behind the established domes Naiches nest and trad rock.

If you are driving around there you can't miss this peak.

Getting There 

To get to the base of the climb, you have to choose the easiest way to go around the ridge that separates trad rock area and Ol' western peak.

Follow a nice trail for 5 to 10 minutes and traverse over boulder fields and small drainages to the east. Once you cross that ridge and are on the major drainage that leads to the peak, follow it for one or 2 hours depending on route finding skills and you will find Glory.
