A neglected and delicate corner with dirty, dirty tendencies, this is easily the worst gear route at Hellgate.

Start up some solid rock on big edges working your way into the corner, the crux comes about half-way up as the dihedral steepens and the holds and feet disappear. A few more "heads up" moves lead into an awkward traverse, left and under a block. Join the upper crack sectin of Fryable. The route stops at a two bolt anchor.

Not a terrible route, the gear is good, the movement is funky, and its all there. I'd just say it favors a more specific ones who like dirt in their eyes.


The Falcon Corner begins right of Fryable and is the obvious, large, dihedral feature just inside the gully between Tower 1 & 2.


A single set of cams and stoppers, a bunch of slings and a few long draws.
maybe safety goggles?
