To get there, after passing through the large circle doorway, immediately head to your left and jump up slightly to the ledge on the wall. From here, look up and you can then again jump up to an even higher point on this left side of the wall. Once on here you'll be able to see the ghost slightly to your right on the far wall ahead of you. Proceed forward on this ledge, and jump across to the ledge on the far wall you were facing earlier. You can then jump from this ledge up to the ghost.

If done in "Tenebrous Tunnels", progress through the mission until you reach the point after "Tharsis Junction" where you get the objective "Explore the Black Garden". This is the same point of the mission from where you take the portal in.

Jump on top of the second block and then face the side of the Vex structure it is in front of, and you will notice a little hole inside the Vex wall. Jump up into that hole and the dead ghost "Orisis: Vision 81" will be in here.
