2nd attempt - first was thwarted by fading sun late in the season in 2005. Snow climb up the Angel . . . but wish I had brought the crampons. Great glissading, though!

Baaa. I've now done 3 of the 14ers, all within the last 4 days. Shavano was maybe my favorite. I love the big open valley leading to the saddle and the views down on Poncha Springs and Salida. Got the summit just in time for clear views, and then the stormclouds started forming, so early. Running down through clouds.

Great hike. Area is extremely beautiful. From 12,400 feet and up, we were in complete fog. Views were limited, but there was no rain. However, the thunderstorms were starting to move in, so I was unable to continue on to Tabaquache Peak. I have to come back and do this again on a clear day.

After climbing Massive, Huron, Harvard and Democrat the previous 4 days I summited Shavano and Tabeguache on a windy but sunny day, there was no snow on the trails anymore. The boulder hopping between peaks is a little tedious. I ran all the way down from Shavano.

Date Climbed: May 30, 2010

Kept a good pace to Tree line, then crossed the angle before going up the right arm. Lots of clouds early. Couldn't see the summit until well above 13K feet above the angle. Spent about 30 minutes on the summit before heading to Tabeguache. Pretty straight forward up the ridge that had a slight cornice.

We made the mistake after Tabe of thinking it might be faster to peal left at the saddle down towards Shavano Lake. The route was pretty brutal and really slow going. Several sections of class III down-climbing plus some nasty wet snow led to an unnerving trip down to the lake. Once there, we post-holled through about 3 foot snow drift around tree line, and then followed a trail that had been intentionally blocked by downed trees and deadwood. We slowly headed east to the Colorado Trail and took it south back to the car. We estimated the downclimbing plus bushwacking added about 3 hours to our trip.

Strongly recommend heading back over Mt Shavano and taking the reverse route down after you bag Tabe.

Date Climbed: May 30, 2010

We ascended the Angel to the summit of Shavano, then continued on to Tabeguache. The snow in the Angel was rock hard in the AM - I was chipping ledges and self-belaying in steeper, icier parts because I'd trusted the advice that crampons are overkill for this coulior - won't make THAT mistake twice! The glissade back down the Angel was a treat. Partners: Deb, Jill & Krystol.

This is a cool route but it's tough. After post-holing up the ridge we didn't have the energy to get Tabeguache

With Nate. Started 3.4 miles below the summer TH. 12.5 hours ctc. Long day, pretty good weather, very tiring. When we summited Shav, neither of us had the strength or energy to go on to Tab. Lots of slogging going on.

Thanks, seano! That was prolly your old trench I followed, for a while anyway.
Hard day out. Wasn't feeling it but pushed through it alright. Completly & absolutely wiped by the time I got back to the truck. Glissaded most of the angel back to my snowshoes but it made for a very tense glissade, not fun at all. Early season glissading...not the best idea.

Bletch: Loose snow below treeline and none above. Having missed it on the way up, I tried glissading the Angel on the way back, but the hard suncups were painful. Parked at 9,000' about 2-2.5 miles from TH.

This was my 9th ascent of Shavano. Standard route this time. Lourdes made it to the saddle; which was great. I can still think of more routes that I want to do.
