 Reached along the ridge which leads northwards from Williams Saddle. The saddle is gained by climbing the tussock/scree slope opposite Edwards Hut, aiming for the gap between the two prominent rock buttresses then sidling to the saddle. From the saddle follow the easy ridge northwards, sidling under its gendarmes and outcrops on the eastern side, regain the very narrow ridge ascending it to the summit of high peak.

The gully up to Williams Saddle from Edwards Hut is down river just a little bit from the hut. We stayed true to the ridge almost the whole way and found it much more enjoyable and not much slower than sidling under on scree. Great climb!
