Finding highest altitude within extents

I'm interested in being able to determine the highest altitude on an elevated local map within the set extents. 

My current approach would be to create a box collider above the map and move it up / down to find the highest point at which it intersects with the map mesh. I can use a binary search style approach to find this in a reasonably low number of intersection checks. The problem with this approach is that it doesn't give an exact result, but rather an approximation depending on a precision threshold which controls when to stop doing intersection checks and accept the result.

Is there any API available through the SDK that might help me in calculating this?
