Fairview Mtn is a climb with spectacular views. Ascending on a well defined trail from Chateau Lake Louise parking lot the summit should be reached in under 2 hours. From the summit descent will be made SW along a saddle ridge to a Pinnacle where we will break into groups based on ability, brief and play on various routes on the Pinnacle. The Pinnacle offers routes for all abilities. Some routes offer exposure, see photo. Return will be along bolder bowl East to main trail.
