Healing Boulder

International > N America > Canada > Alberta > Crowsnest Pass > Frank Slide

Description

One of the biggest boulders in the area with routes on the east and west faces and home of the classic Healing Arete. Most of the routes are highball and technical climbing.

The Mini guide is here: sendage.com/guidebooks/Fran…

Getting There

The best access to the Healing Area is to park at the roadside at the east end of 6th Avenue near the edge of the trees, and walk in on the dirt track.

Follow the dirt track for approximately 100 m, then turn right and walk down an old grassy access road towards the huge boulder (The Healing Boulder) just a short distance away.

Alternatively, some problems (Dance Dance Revolution, Frankenstein) are more easily approached directly from the main road (6th Avenue).
