Via SW buttress, from camp in Indian Basin. A surprisingly casual and straightforward route - mostly 2nd class with only occasional easy 3-rd class moves with no exposure. Many lines are possible, and the plethora of seemingly random cairns reflects this. Nonetheless, all routes eventually lead to the spectacular, wildly exposed summit ridge and stunning view of the grandest portion of the Wind River Range. All in all, a superb and low-stress experience, if you're willing to do the long pack in.

We approached from Elkhart Park. The hike in was probably one of the prettiest hikes I have ever done hands down. The lakes are all so gorgeous and the wild flowers were out of this world. From Elkhart Park to Island Lake it took us 5.5 hrs. The hike is terrible at all. We did Fremont Peak the first day in 5 hrs from our high camp in Titcomb Basin and Gannet in 13 hrs. The bugs were terrible in the evening in Titcomb Basin. They weren't bad at all on the hike in. Gaining the ridge from Titcomb sort of sucked. The col described in the route description is loose and an awful slog. Then you have to undulate along the ridge after the col to gain the route. Take the grassy ledges! Approach the col, but look for a grassy ledge that cuts at an angle..a perfect ramp. Scramble up this to gain the start of the southwest buttress

On a 2 day backpack into Titcomb. Climbed from Titcomb. Not sure why this isn't done more often. If you follow the grassy ramps it is mostly Class 2 if you are good with your route finding, some cairns in place already. Can make it more interesting and do Class 4+ up ledges. Great views from the top. About 2 hours up.

Climbed from camp just west of and below Indian Basin. Fun scrambling and incredible summit views. Ended up doing some fourth class climbing on the descent due to inattention to the route.

Hiked into camp at Island Lake and climbed the next morning; very smoky from some bad fires in Idaho, but the views from the summit were still unbelievable!

Climbed standard route from camp at 11,200 feet in Indian Basin. OK scramble, awesome summit and views! Descended same way and then climbed Jackson in the afternoon... which was harder over all.

Hiked around Mistake Lake and then angled up and right through a steep talus couloir. Jennifer was right! It totally connected into the SW trail. The entire climb only took half a day and we got a late start having summited Gannett the day before!

Scrambled up Fremont Peak's SW Buttress as a day hike from Elkhart Park, using the Indian Basin approach. Cloudy and sprinkles, but stable weather. RT was about 14 hours, 45 minutes.

Really windy, like 60mph. Thought I was going to blow of the mountain. Amazing mountain though.

After a two-day approach, we got a hard freeze and perfect weather for a mixed climb- the last 1000' was in crampons. Sunny, absolutely calm on the summit. Very, very fun climb.

Solo backpack to Indian Basin via Island Lake. As I started up the trail to the saddle, hooked up with thru-hiker Craig H. for a great scramble up excellent granite slabs to a summit block with stunning views of Titcomb Basin, Gannet Peak, the Tetons and sweeping glaciers. web album here:
