ericdrenewed Sawatch interest!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2013


This double summit 2 day climb has renewed my interest in the Sawatch range! Blank cabin meadows are intriguing at the start of trail then a decent trek up thru trees and across streams. The existing camping flats are ideal especially the last high spot at 11,200 offering open air views outside your tent. May is a good month to see the profound Grinch alongside the Angel. After winding thru these characters, the 14er path becomes kinda unclear and turns into a class 2 scramble up to the summit. Strong wind drafts keep you alert on the ridge climb to Tabeguache. Enjoy!

Date Climbed: May 28, 2013


Climbed with EricD - bagged Tabeguache. We were able to skirt around Shavano on the way back to save some time, not sure if any energy was saved as that's a lot of scrambling up there! Some snow drifts were difficult to avoid (and some were even preferred to the rocks). Traction not needed. Great weather and we saw a big-horn sheep and some marmots.

Maybe I would have liked this one more if I hadn't been so tired from two difficult days ahead of this one. Typical Sawatch slog! Nothing techincally challenging - but plenty physically challenging.

Very nice day, with Tabeguache and storm right when we hit the tree line on the way down.

Longer trip than expected. Camped about two miles up from the trailhead for fun, lots of nice spots with plenty of water.

Climbed Shavano on standard route with Dustin Kelley. Also climbed Tab the same day. One of the longest glissades I have ever done. Great day and great weather.

Longest glissade ever, from right cuff to dress hem. High wind and blowing debris on the hike up.

My buddy had a hard time getting off the mountain. Overall though, it was a great day and a beautiful climb.
