Shavano via Blank Gulch  Sucess!

Made the summit solo since my daughter had to turn back with a sore ankle. Will be back in two weeks to do it again with some Boy Scouts.

Blank Gulch TH, Ascend Shavano E Slopes to Tabeguache S Slopes  Sucess!

When we began the mountains were covered by clouds. We broke out the Shavano saddle to look over a white world pierced only by high mountain peaks. What a sight! By the time we reached the Shavano summit, all the couds had burned off for a great view in all directions.

Route Climbed:Blank Gulch - Shav.&Tab.  Sucess!

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.

Angel to summit & Tabeguache  Sucess!

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.

Route: East Slopes  Sucess!

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!

Shavano & Tabeguache  Sucess!

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

Stumbling Block

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

Route Climbed: SE route Date Climbed: August 2000  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Blank Gulch Date Climbed: July 14, 2003  Sucess!

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.
