Broken Helm Hollow is a small cave located on the southeast side of the mountain southeast of Riften.

The entrance is to the left of a large waterfall that is the location for the treasure marked by Treasure Map IX. There are two Bandit guards outside with another three along with their leader inside. There are two corundum ore veins in the cave.

There is a pull-chain near the rear of the cave that opens a passage to a torture room with the corpse of Leifnarr, which is found during the quest "Flight or Fight."

The location is one of the locations in the area that is closest to the Morrowind border.
