Over the last few years the lake has receded, exposing several sandstone cliffs that are the perfect height for bouldering. Although nothing here is really above V3 in terms of difficulty, the quality of rock is pretty good and off the beaten path.
From I-40 take exit 333 in Tucumcari and get on Hwy. 54 North towards Logan. After about 15 miles, take a left towards 12 Shores golf club. Instead of going left at the fork to the resort, go right and continue towards Mine Canyon. There is a dirt road that leads to a few primitive camp sites. You can walk down to the dry lake bed from here.
