Default Access defroster vent

The grate over the defroster broke a few years ago, leaving a hole. This morning, I tossed my keys on the dash; and they fell down inside. What's the best way to get access to the inside of the vent? I'm sure they are down one side or the other, but we can't see them at all.

What Joel said. Either that or one of the little spring operated claw tools.
