Apparently some guy has done some track work on the high route so you may get on to the start of it from the saddle south of Adelaide Tarn between Mt Douglas and the high point just south of the tarn. I’ve very crudely marked the high route in blue from a very old (1990) map but be warned it is as rough as guts as the map is very crude and simplistic. I think in actual fact people travel along the ridge from the pass above Lonely Lake to AnatokiPeak. There is a route description on the net by a guy called Tristan Riley about the high route. There used to be a wire but it was nasty and was removed in 1990.
