My friend Andrea sent me a few videos taken by a runner in the 2006 Grand Tetons 50-mile race (Frank). I thought that they were great and hilarious. In one video he talks about heading up Fred's Mountain (a roughly 2,000 foot climb over 2.8 miles) twice. The 100-mile runners have to climb Fred's Mountain 4 times. Nevertheless, here's an idea of what runners in the Grand Teton Races face heading up Fred's.
The first video appears to be on Frank's initial climb up Fred's Mountain, with the second video being his second and last climb. Enjoy.
