Considering scrambling Emerson while we're in the area for Cardinal early next week. Is this route only a Waterfall after rain or should we expect similar conditions due to snow melt?

I think you can easily bypass the water/wet sections, but it has been years since I did it.  I'm pretty sure you can check out the wet area from the base of the climb, but you'd have to hike up there to find out.  Sorry I can't give you a more definitive answer.

Edit: Call this guide service that guides that route. They'd know:

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
