This is the next small chunk of rock to the left (west) of Window Rock on Castle Mountain. It's a bit higher than Window Rock. From a distance it looks like a decent-sized rock, but it's pretty small...three pitches at most. You could combine this with South Ridge on Window Rock for a tiny, 6 pitch adventure, but you'd still have loads of time on your hands.
Figure out a legal approach from US 34. Get a decent bearing from the road...you may have trouble seeing the crag from the woods.
