The Watchtower Crag can be found to the southwest of the Weller Slab and to the west of the Weller Campground. Routes are located on the southwest corner of the crag where the pine trees and ferns meet a large aspen forest. The approach requires some bushwacking, making it very secluded and out of the way of the road.
Head down Independence Pass to Weller Campground or the Weller Trailhead parking lot. An unmarked trail heads out of the furthest northwest campsite. Head to where the trail ends, about ten minutes past the boulder field for the Weller Slab in a large clearing above a short slope. The cliffs for the Watchtower Crag are just beginning to appear to the west. Bushwack to the top of these cliffs and follow them west until they open up into a large wall. Rappel down from the pine tree at the top, or head even further west to where the slope lessens and you can scramble down.
