East Ridge

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
From the Emily Creek bridge on the Routeburn track follow the straight rocky gully to the southwest. This is the furthest true left gully of several creeks shown on the map that join Emily Creek above the bridge. Straightforward boulder travel leads to the 1200m contour. Here, leave the stream and sidle into the snowgrass basin, climbing to the col at 1544 metres (Fraser Col). From the col follow the ridge to the summit.

Comments

The East Ridge ascends from the col between Emily Creek and Fraser Creek - not from Emily Pass (which is on the NW side of the mountain) as described above.
