Castle Waterman Rock Climbing
Castle Waterman and some stuff on the right. Easy ...
Big lump of granite visible from ACH. Rock quality down low is not too good, but it improves the higher you climb.
The best approach is to hike up the west ridge from the parking lot off the Santa Clara Divide/ACH intersection. Follow the ridge up taking the easy ground until you reach the rock. We eyeballed it and used a Tom Harrison map, but you could probably do better by printing out a satellite image of the area, marking the crag.
