High end of moderate. For folks already acclimated to the elevation here, I’m sure it’s moderate. For late 40s folks from the Midwest where we live everyday life below 1000 ft, it’s understandably more challenging. Reaching the peak at Fred’s Mt was a great challenge, and the views are truly exhilarating. We stopped there and fueled up on some salted cashews and an energy bar. For me, continuing on from there to the Mary’s Saddle was where things got tough. But the view from the saddle is well worth it. Truly stunning stuff. Bugs were present but not very bad.

Beautiful hike! Unfortunately, Bannon Trail (the main trail up to the peak) was closed today, so we opted to take the chairlift to the summit and continue to Mary’s Saddle on foot. It was incredibly gorgeous scenery with stellar views of the Tetons.

Great hike, beautiful views. you can see the Tetons very clearly from the top. The summit is pretty rocky (some of it loose) heading downward towards Mary's saddle.
