The most direct line to Wakefields summit. From the viewpoint at the end of the Hooker Valley Track, access the nearest scree fan descending from Mt Wakefield ( the second large scree fan on the east side of the Hooker valley) Start on a compact sandstone staircase, then follow a broken ridge to the cliff bands, which are the crux of the climb. Trend slightly right on superb weathered greywacke, through the cliffs (crux Grade 12) and finish on easier ground and gullies,
