The Mountain Waycastle is a location in Dragon's Dogma.
A place of rest on the way to the capital, when coming from lands to the south of Gran Soren. Just to its south is the Manamia Trail, and to the northis Moonsbit Pass. The gate of the Waycastle opens to a stone bridge over a river that leads to Man Swallowing Falls, if followed upstream to the the West.
The gate remains locked until the main quest Off With Its Head is started. Until then, you have to go via the Ancient Quarry to get to Gran Soren. However, access to the city is not granted until Off With Its Head is completed.
