Ascent Trip Report

This location is at a map error, the actual reservation boundaries are shifted 6 miles to the east, on the next township. The high point on the actual reservation is near 32.1044, -111.0886, or on the section line running west of this point. I visited the real location just before driving to the map error location.

Some creative 4wd driving was needed to get on to the dirt track leading south to this map error, and later to exit the track and get back on to pavement. An old barbed wire fence, completely down in places, runs north and south along the section lines. I used GPS to stop at the mapped HP, and wandered around looking for a 1/4 section marker, but did not see one. There is a section corner marker 3/4 mile to the north at the NE corner of section 24.

This error has been reported, and eventually this location, this report, and this ascent will be moved into the repository of meaningless travels ;)
