Cable to hood latch on 1985 C4 has broken and I can not get access to the engine

Last week I tried to open the hood on my 1985 C4 by using the manual lever at the lower left side of the dash. The cable has severed and there does not appear to be access to the latch assembly that holds the hood in place.

How can I open the hood to proceed with installing new cables?
