skyward22loss of virginity  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2008


Lost my CO 14er virginity on Mt. Shavano 2 days after arriving in Colorado for my permanent move here. Finally reconnected with my Aconcagua partner and good friend Dirk for a fun-filled extravaganza week. We went from Blank Gulch trailhead; very windy on summit. On the way down we saw 5-10 bighorn sheep (~10,000 ft.) and able to get fairly close for pictures. Very cool. Headed into Buena Vista for some outstanding mushroom burgers and then to Cottonwood hot springs. Bivied in the nearby national forest, with so many stars and satellites.

Did with Eric, from Blank Gulch. Beautiful day up there, although the forest fire a couple drainages down was strange. Mind-blowing descent. We saw some bighorn sheep, which was very cool.

Started up Shavano trail, traversed at 11,950' to Shavano Lake. Then up to the head of the valley with a few easy Class 3 moves to avoid rotten snow. Descended via Shavano trail. Herd of bighorn sheep and a few ptarmigan above the lake.

Midlife Mountaineer

The 2nd summit of Shavano on the return from Tabeguache was a little discouraging. When the storms started moving in that was all the motivation I needed to git r done.

thebeave7Angel of Shavano Ski  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 10, 2008


Started from the Angel CG up the CT. CT was mostly snow free, didn't start skinning til 10400ft. Snow was nicely consolidated, above treeline it was all windblown powder til near the top where the surface became wind/sun crust(unskinnable). Left skis at the top of the left arm(climbers right) as snow is not continuous from the summit. Ended up skiing the head for better turns, 4" wind blown powder in the lower body made for nice turns. Blank Gulch TH should be open soon.

Long trail. A nice day, we had a scare after making Tabaguache with lightning while trying to make it back over Shavano. Nice trail, good views to the South.
