 At least two of the ribs leading onto Wakefield from just above the second swingbridge were used as training climbs for guides in the 1930s. From the second swingbridge climb a very enjoyable ridge to the summit. The rock is good and the panoramic views including Sefton, the Main Divide and Aoraki are superb.

Don't try follow any of the spurs directly above the second bridge along the hooker track; you'll have an enjoyable push through vertical scrub, followed by chossy rock, all of which culminates in a exposed cheval section followed by steep section on horrendous chossy rock. Definitely not the "very enjoyable ridge to the summit". To reach guide route follow the old route on the true left of the river until making the obvious ridge line between the labelled 900 contour line and the 1900 contour line as marked on topo maps.
