Description 

The Falcon features a classic John Gill problem and is a bit detached from the chaos that is Custer State Park. Plan on only having your photo taken 30 times as per the usual 50 if you climb here.


Getting There 

When looking into the Switchbacks area from the road, Falcon is just left of the obvious "Leaning Tower." It can be accessed by walking up and around the Leaning Tower and squeezing through a tight corridor. From there scramble up another tight gully to a cozy little zone that sits at the base of the route.
