Fraser Col to Emily Pass Sidle.
This photo is taken from the true right top of the gut of the initial climb to Emily Pass (It is looking in the opposite direction from this one: http://tramper.co.nz/?14584). It is possible, and actually easier then it looks, to sidle between Fraser Col and this spot on the way to Emily Pass without having descend all the way to Emily Basin and back up the gut. The sidle negotiates mildly sloping snow grass and passes through about 4 gullies, 2 of which have streamlets in them. Its hard to tell the exact route from this photo but more of less maintain height from Fraser Col and always pass under the bluffs along the way. From the posistion of the photographer descend scree into the Emily Pass gut at the foot of the larger waterfall. Easy in good conditions! Takes 30 minutes.
