I did it in early August last year with Nartreb and I found it no more difficult than going to Camp Muir. The views from South Sister on a clear day are amazing!!!!! Teardrop Lake is an amazing site!!!! I highly recommend it!

The first 4miles ish are really easy, especially the one mile over a completely flat trail...the last couple are pretty rough and kinda steep. I did the south sister late last august, and I remember it being pretty cold (55 max). What I really loved about this hike was the views at the top. The photo shot at the summit with the middle and north sister right at your back are awesome. Definitely a very memorable hike to do...as bill said though its an endurance hike, just like Adams.
