Description

The mountain is largely undeveloped, but offers relative seclusion from locals and definitely other climbers. Been working to put up at least a half dozen of the best boulder problems from the mountain up here. The rock quality is sandstone and can be chossy, so be careful. The Eastern slope offers some harder rock. The prevailing winds usually come from the SW and can be really severe, especially if you are on the Western side of the Mountain.
**update**
I no longer live in Tucumcari but please do not hesitate to message me for access info or beta. Happy climbing!

Getting There

From I-40 take the exit with the Love's and Flying J truck stops and instead of heading towards them go south towards the Mountain. The road will cross a cattle guard and then turn into dirt. There is a parking area on the left, but keep following the road as it curves to the left (instead of going straight along the canal). The road is usually in good condition and unless your car is like 2 inches off the ground, clearance is fine. Continue to follow the road as it weaves across some open country for maybe 3/4 of a mile. It ends at the base of the mountain and there is a circular parking area. If you don't have a 4x4 I would highly recommend parking here.
