Freemont Peak via the West Saddle
Instead of going all the way to the saddle between Fremont and Doyle, I decided to shorten the route and simply go up to the flat saddle, which is pretty high, right to the West of Fremont Peak. Just take the Inner basin trail to where it connects with the Weatherford Trail. And at this intersection, don't go left or right, simply go straight forward up the mountain, off trail. Just take the route of least resistance and slowly start to curve your route to the left, east. There are a number of game trails that you can follow to make the hiking easier. I started at 6:30am at Lockett Meadow, got to the inner basin at 7:30, Fremont Peak summit at 9:30 (three hours from Lockett Meadow), back to the inner basin at 11am, then back to Lockett Meadow at 11:50am. These times are with able photo/rest periods.
