From Fraser col head westwards to observe moderate tussock slopes coming down from Emily Peak above. Traverse westwards across the slopes, roughly maintaining height, descending into and out of several gullies along the way. and passing beneath all bluffs except for the ones at the bottom of the gullies. Climbing out of the largest gully will deposit you on the true right side of the large gut which the normal route up to Emily Pass heads up. Drop down scree into the gut between the big and small waterfall and climb up to the smaller one at the head of the gut. Climb here up a nearly vertical rock and grass face beside the waterfall, then sidle to the right (north) to reach easier grass slopes. Climb these to the southwest to gain Emily Pass.
