Overcast, slightly windy at saddle and peak. Bighorn sheep female came close to me on trail down, but bounded after my dog came closer. Saw big rafter of wild turkeys at TH, during hunting season, no hunters around!

Excellent weather - hit the summit at about 1130 after a 5 hours on the trail with my wife and 2 dogs. Decided against doing Tabeguache since we were encroaching on the afternoon. Got some light rain on the way back down after we hit the trees. Overall a great day on the mountain. Will have to come back to bag Tabeguache another day.

Summited Shavano with Mountain Girl and we proceeded over to Tabeguache. Got as far as the saddle and turned back due to dicey weather moving over. Came back up too low and had to scramble back up to the ridge top. All in all, a good hike. 14er number 23 for me.

Summited Shavano (2x) & Tab. It was an interesting day that turned out well, but could have been bad. Had to wait on my company so got an hour late start (7am), and then he was struggling up the mountain so I had to go at it on my own. T-storms blew in early and grapple fell hard. Most hikers were running down to tree-line (which is quite a long ways away!) I was fortunate to get off before the lightening, but MANY were not. ...and SOME were still going up... yeah, dum. They all had stories to tell in the "parking lot," poles buzzing, hair standing straight up, etc... and they seemed proud?!

We started the morning looking for a trailhead that no longer exists, but found out that had been closed, so we decided to use Angel of Shavano trailhead. We looked for the steep trail rising out of Angel of Shavano trailhead but couldn't find it, so we just hiked up to Blank Gulch and statrted from there. Very beautiful hike with some amazing views, it was fairly long, but easy.

Nice easy snow climb via the Angel; no one else on the mountain that day.

This was a very dry year so the angel of shavano was more like the angel of scree. We ascended along a trail to the north of the angel of shavano. Ended up badly spraining an ankle at about 14,000' on the way down in a thunderstorm. Took about 8 hours to limp back to the car, but made the summit!

Pretty wild weather today... Bobby, Jeremy, the dogs and I had a good time even though we didn't make both summits.

3/4/14- long winter climb of shavano, with esprit point and tabeguache, via its southeast ridge. the snowpack was much firmer than i expected leading to an "easier" 6625' vertical gain day. passed out afterwards! #58/100 winter

4/22/06- another climb of the angel, w/dave hale. always enjoyable!

5/10/05- excellent, snow climb! i would definitely recommend this for someone who has never completed a snow climb. one of the best glissades in Colorado!

Trailfinding can be an issue throughout. Very rocky tracks can be lost when underbrush opens out on lower slopes.

If you climb to the saddle before turning toward the summit, be aware that there is a prominent track visible on the left and if you follow that, as we did, you will have some balance climbing before the summit. I suggest you turn toward the visible summit about 200 meters before the saddle and just scramble up from there. This both shorter and easier than going all the way to the saddle.

WE climbed Shavano via the Jennings creek trailhead. Shavano was a relatively difficult mountain, though one of the more spectacular in the Sawatch the Angel was in full flutter during our hike.

Solo, VERY early so to be able to take my time. Summited Mt.Shavano early enough ( 9:50) to procede to Tabeguache with not a cloud in the sky! Too much time consuming talus, but not as bad as La Plata, I thought.. Took many photos of all the different kinds of pretty flowers I'll need to look up their names...Will try to post them. This was a long hot day without sunglasses, nor sunscreen....so much for starting out in the dark! Evident haze still in the horizon from the recent forest fires. Great, great day!

Did this with Mike and Marella. Beautiful day to be out in the mountains, and a great way to spend the 4th! Traversed over to Tabeguache and and back... that 2nd time up Shavano sure hurt.



By the way, the Angel is essentially completely melted out, and not worth doing anymore...

Went over Shavano on the way to Tabeguache. I glissaded the Angel (what was left of it) on the way down for a quick descent. Some storms caused many of us that day to run off the summit.

A great snow climb with an even better slide down.
