Some spring sussing sounds like a good idea ... I know Chris also wants to check out the area more also.
Sticking to Deeks Ridge, or dropping into the valley like you suggest are the most promising options, but I have no doubt that we'll be surprised which route ends up actually being the easiest.
Looking at google, the valley down from the saddle between Deeks and Windsor also has promise, though I can't tell if some of the apparently open terrain actually is (maybe someone has photos looking down from Windsor peak? (hypothetical in blue)
