Ascent Trip Report

Drive south from Tucumcari about 29 miles on Route 209 to the JCT with Route 268. Turn right (south) on 268 and go 9 miles to the Quay/Curry county line. Continue south 1 more mile, and find a dirt road on your left CR 29. Turn left (east) and follow this road for 2 miles... be careful, it can be quite muddy when wet! In 2 miles, you'll intersect a better road CR-AH. Note the ranch just south of this intersection. You can turn north (left) onto CR-AH and go roughly 1/4 mile north, park, and cross the fence into the hayfield. You can also enter the hayfield from the CR 29/CR-AH intersection, where a gate accesses the field. Wander NE ~ 1/4 mile or so and see whether you can find the highest land... which I thought might be near an E-W electric fence.

As far as triple divides go, this one is extremely flat and not very inspiring.
