From the pylon, follow the poled route down to Cascade Creek and cross to the TL and a toilet and DoC sanctioned camp spot (note that camping is not permitted at Cascade Saddle).
The route climbs away from the creek to a small saddle then descends gently to a flat valley. On the far side, the track again climbs to a small saddle and then out onto the spur that leads towards Cascade Saddle.
