Summited a sluggish 4 and a half hours after leaving my car. Found my second wind on the ridge to Tabeguache. Saw a male mountain goat crossing the "angel of shavano" route. The angel is disappearing fast and I avoided it. I wish I hadnt! Several climbers got up it without post-holing. Beautiful weather and little snow. The summit was crawling with marmots..watch your food.

I was on the summit 20 hours after leaving sea level without even a headache. Part of a 10 day 18 14,000 ft. solo climbing trip.

Great climb w/ Dave from Florida. His first Colorado mountain. Snow conditions were great on the Angel, but warming snow below timberline made for some miserable late night postholing on the way back.

WOW. Starting in the dark with headlamps was kinda creepy (but fun) in the trees. First ones on the summit and then traversed over to Tabeguache. Cows and bulls surrounded our car when we came down. Crazy!

From Tabeguache, Descended McCoy Gulch just to see what all the fuss was about. It's interesting, but I've been down worse.

3 hours to the top. Great easy snow climb, and fast glissade on the descent.

Made several attempts, never summited for weird reasons, kind of a odd stumbling block one for me.

First tried this one in November of 1999. I turned around when I got to treeline. The snow and wind were terrible. Tried it again in August of 2000 with success. Only 4 people up there. I forgot my camera somewhere near the top, that sucked. I ran down from the saddle back to the TH. Did pretty good!

I had to pull over as soon as I turned onto US24 though, I wasn't feeling good and threw up. I was fine after that!

Felt pretty easy. Nice 600 foot summit cone. Could see Pikes Peak and all the way south through the Crestones, sand dunes, and to Blanca group. Good yellow fall colors.

Only real comment is that this route is pretty long. If you go over to Tabaguache, you have re-climb Shavano on your descent. We got part of the way to Tabaguache, and got chased off by an early(10:30am) thunderstorm. You are a long way from treeline if that happens.

Fun easy snow route. Didn't even need the crampons or axe. Good ski descent on Angel snowfield, the rest of the party glissaded the Angel and had a blast. Highly recommended it if the conditions are right.

I ascended this mountain after a few weeks constant backpacking and climbing and was able to jog and speed hike past the lame, winded tourists. The traverse over to Tabeguache is really definitive of the Sawatch. The more Southerly ridge makes for a more pleasantly solitary descent, or ascent I suppose, and it even has a pleasant name 'Esprit Peak' according to G. Roach.

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!
