This has got to be one of Colorado's true gems. To bag the Fair requires a full day's approach. Camp at Mirror Lake or push it a little farther and scramble up to Triangle Lake and camp closer to the base of the snow climb. The ski descent can be technical and committing with 40° to 45° snow on the upper glacier, and a crevasse at around 12,200'. This isolated alpine cirque provides incredible scenery.
Cross the Mirror Lake outlet and head up Cascade Creek. Scramble up to Triangle Lake. Hike around the West side and the route is obvious.
