Should be designated as difficult for an average person. I say this mainly for the distance and elevation gain near the peak. Also, plan to carry 5 or more liters of water in summer months. From the trailhead to the pass, the trail is fairly well marked and kept up nicely. Trail near the top is somewhat nonexistent and requires some class 3+ climbing. It took 5+ hours with a 30 minute hang out on the peak. Leave before 7am to beat the sun coming over the Organs. Note the descent is the most difficult as it's quite loose and steep from the peak back down to the pass. The trail from the pass back down to the parking lot was a little harder to follow than on the way up due to cattle trails and short cuts, could have just been the heat getting to us though! All around a good challenge and worth the view of Cruces and the vastness of Mesilla Valley.
