Fairfield is most commonly climbed as the high point of the Fairfield horseshoe, a walk which has no agreed direction of travel. Coming from Great Rigg, the long grassy ridge heads directly for the summit, whilst the walker arriving from Hart Crag climbs up from Link Hause with a fine view of Scrubby Crag to the right, before the stony traverse of Fairfield summit. It can also be ascended from Grisedale Tarn up from Patterdale. For more Ascents of Fairfield please see Wikipedia Fairfield Ascents.
