North-East Face, Healy 2
Massive Range - Alberta - Canada
Banff National Park

For information to access the starting point for North-East Face, on Healy 2, please see the Lost Horse Creek ski zone page.

Most years there is a good sized break in the northern cornice line on the north-east aspect of Healy 2 which makes for a good run with several cliff options. If dropping the cliffs it's probably a good idea to probe the landings as this is a rock fall area.

From camp head north-east about 1km before doing a U-turn towards the thin small trees where a slight bench should show itself. Ascend climber's right above the trees and then head back towards Healy 2 Peak before the angle steepens. Traverse the alpine area between Healy 2 Peak and the lower head wall heading towards the break in the cornice to gain the main ridge. This route is exposed so be sure of the snow pack and where you are in relation to the head wall.
