Upper bells is stunning. However, I have been up to this pass several times (at the top of Bells between Big Horn Peak and lake Hardy). I have never found a "moderate" way up that ridge up to BigHorn Peak. Plus I would not classify the ridge between Lone and big horn as "moderate" either. To be safe I haul basic bail out type climbing gear any time up in this area which certainly adds to difficulty in my mind.
