You might be able to reach it from underneath as mentioned above. If not, you'll have to remove the grill, and then you can easily reach around with your hand to push the lever.
An original pull cable is best, though it can be a pain to route it as it came from the factory. Practice on the junkyard car you get your replacement from before tearing your own car apart. Another way is to fabricate a "pull chain" type of release that hangs under the latch out of sight. You could always use a chain and padlock to secure the hood if you are worried about theives stealing your battery.
good luck, John
