11.79 Authors' Route III 3
0
Ascend the prominent couloir between Spur 1 and Spur 2, beginning about 150m west of the crest of Pioneer Pass, reaching the Main Divide about 100m east of where the Haast massif abuts it. Traverse the ridge to the summit (refer to Route 11.110).

11.80 Spur 2 III 3
0
Gained from a quarter of the way up Route 11.79, and leads directly to High Peak. The climbing is fairly steep without being technical. The rock is sound to begin with and very shattered towards the top.

0
Ascend the next obvious gully right of Spur 2, then up mixed ground to the left of the upper gully to finish near the summit.
