BeginnerClimber2nd time's a charm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2007


This was my 2nd time at Shav/Tab. The first time was Oct 2006 when the winds turned terrible above treeline and my partner and I were forced to turn back.

So, met up with a guy from 14ers.com on the trail. I started at 7AM, but he didn't start until 7:30. Though it'd been sunny all day, we hit treeline and the clouds rolled in. A little depressed, we pressed on to the saddle where we met 2 other couples who were waiting out the fog. We pressed on, and immediately, the clouds cleared.

Anyway, summitted Shav, didn't eat much, then went over to Tab. Hit the saddle, and was floored by a wave of nausea. Sat down and thought about turning back. After a bit, decided to force myself up to the summit of Tab. Met my partner up there as well as another guy, who all thought I had altitude sickness, which was weird since I hadn't had altitude sickness in any of my 12 other 14er summits! So, I started eating an apple and felt great right away. PHEW! Guess I just was hypoglycemic.

Felt great the rest of the day and hiked down by 4PM.

About three and a half hours from the Blank Gulch Trailhead. It was all kinds of windy at the near the top, but a nice day and a pretty decent hike.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007


I left the Blank Gulch trailhead at 6:50 AM and arrived at Shavano's summit at 9:45. There is no snow left in the Angel now. There were some ominous clouds off to the northwest, so there was some concern about whether the weather would cooperate for Tabeguache. Fortunately, it did. I took a short break there, and then headed over to Tabeguache.

slowbutsteadyfeeding the rat  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 1998


In his musings on mountaineering A. Alvarez describes climbing as an annual checkup, deliberately putting oneself in diffcult situations and refers to this as "feeding the rat". While climbing Shavano from Blank Cabin I actually fed the rat also....some hose insulation from under the hood of my car. Still made the summit and limped to the dealership in Salida.

Ascended and descended the Angel, snow conditions were ideal from treeline to the summit. Storms were moving in and prevented a traverse to Tabeguache

Beautiful day for a climb! Took a little longer than I thought but that wasn't disappointing at all. FYI, Moonlight Pizza in Salida really hits the spot after a long day of climbing!

PapaBanucciMarmot at the Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2007


There was this marmot at the summit, and I mean *at* the summit. Sitting on the second to top-most rock. Evidently begging for food.

Don't feel bad. I just summited Tabegauche yesteday after 3 tries. Last year I was turned around twice; once by weather and the other time nausea. Third time will be the charm!

Had the pleasure of climbing with my son, JP. He lounged on the summit while I went over and tagged Tabegauche. It is always a joy to climb with my son!

Great climb, most of the Angel was gone but got within 100ft of a mountain goat on the way down.

Set out to get Tabeguache since I had summited Shavano before. But guess I am getting slower and with some weather coming in, decided to just do Shavano today. Third time is the charm-- will have to try it again in a couple months and get an earlier start.

a fine day indeed! ditto what Mots010 said: Successful day on Shav and Tab. Weather was cooperative and the glissade down the Angel was a nice touch.
