Fairly easy ridge, but it takes longer than it seems.

Took about 45 mins to cross the saddle and summit. Met some good people (Mark, Josh, Martin) on Mt Shavano and hiked up with them. Rested a good 30 mins then started back over to Mt Shavano and back down. Mark showed me how to glissade, way fun!! My 11th 14'er and another beautiful day in Colorado, sweet!!

Perfect day for a climb. Left trailhead around 630am. Summitted Shavano, then hiked the saddle to Tabeguache. Spent lots of time on top Tabeguache waiting for the rest of our group to summit. Awesome weather to take a nap on top of a 14er...very warm and virtually no wind while we were up there. Glissade down the angel was great too.

What a long day! It started with a 3,500 or so scree climb and just got worse. On the way down I decided to take an alternate route down the mountain and ended up sliping and getting knocked out. The whole trip ended up being a 11 hour day.

I traversed over to Tabeguache and back to Shavano in 1hr 45min. The climb from the saddle was a mellow snow climb all the way to the summit. I glissaded back down to the saddle and scrambled my way back to Shavano. By then the snow had already melted and I made my way back to the trailhead from Shavano in two hours.

Climbed this along with Shavano. Was good snow to kick step to the summit ridge. Great views! Too bad we were chased down the summit as well as down Shavano by Thunder/Snow storms! Made it VERY intense.

Solo Trip - As most people, I hiked Shavano and Tabeguache together. Weather was great and the aspens were changing. From the summit, the aspens looked like rivers of gold pouring off the mountain. A great time to hike these peaks.

RatballsRoute Climbed: Jennings Creek trailhead via Southwest/West Ridge Date Climbed: September, 2001  Sucess!

Another completely unremarkable Sawatch hump. I remember next to nothing about this climb, except wishing that I had combined it when I had earlier climbed Shavano.

Staring from the rough road TH neear Jennings Creek, the route is fairly easy to followas is climbs up to and along the south ridge of Tab's western subpeak. The day we were on the summit there were storm clouds miles to the south of us, over Mt. Ouray, but we had enough static electricity to have our arm hair stand out and tingle. We didn't linger on the top, and passed on continuing to Shavano. On the way down we met a couple of men that we had talked to at the TH. They made it to the western subpeak, and had mistakenly believed that the had summited Tab, thinking it was really Shavano. Oops! Close but no cigar!

This was the worst route possible. Loose rock and dusty the entire trip.

Great day, weather held out nicely, especially since we got a bit of a late start, but not too bad. Both summits and the trail were fairly crowded.

Started from Jennings Creek, and made the summit in about 3.5 hours. Alot of talus to traverse in this route - my knees really felt it. Good views of Shavano and the rest of the Sawatch from the summit.

One of my favorite 14-ers, done from the now-closed Jennings Creek trail, I've always thought would be a good way to rate conditioning--long trail, and relentlessly up hill! Done with Aaron and Jim, in a snowstorm with about two feet of fresh snow on top. Interesting footing, to say the least!

Got my Oldsmobile station wagon to the trailhead - back then the road was better. After mountain climbing in Colorado for 30 years, this was my first solo climb. Attempted to climb Antero on the same trip, but ran out of water and had to return. Upper Browns Creek is a big, miserable swamp.

Climbed along with Shavano with my brother Brent. Weather was moving in, so the summit stay was short.

Climbed in conjunction with Shavano, but it would be worth going back to explore this mountain by itself. It just has a fun name, ya know? :)

Even though many disdain Jennings Creek, if more people just hiked to the rear of the basin and used Tab's west ridge (rather than trying to ascend nasty, loose slopes to the ridge that splits the Jennings and McCoy drainages), this approach wouldn't have such a poor reputation and the CFI might not have had to close the TH.



Erin and I knew about the impending TH closure that summer, which would obscure the TH and make an approach via Jennings Creek more difficult. We hiked up the trail into the small basin and used a dry Jennings Creek bed for easy passage through the willows. At the rear of the basin, we climbed easy (and very stable!) slopes for perhaps 3-400' to attain Tab's west ridge. Heading east on the ridge for 1.5 miles to the summit made for a fine alpine stroll. Fire season hadn't really ramped up yet (though the Hayman Fire would start little more than a week later), so we could see the full length of the Sangres, and to the southwest we could spy on Uncompahgre. A trip report is available here.
