Shav-Tab combo  Sucess!

Thanks, seano! That was prolly your old trench I followed, for a while anyway.
Hard day out. Wasn't feeling it but pushed through it alright. Completly & absolutely wiped by the time I got back to the truck. Glissaded most of the angel back to my snowshoes but it made for a very tense glissade, not fun at all. Early season glissading...not the best idea.

Ridge north of Angel  Sucess!

Bletch: Loose snow below treeline and none above. Having missed it on the way up, I tried glissading the Angel on the way back, but the hard suncups were painful. Parked at 9,000' about 2-2.5 miles from TH.

Lots of Routes  Sucess!

This was my 9th ascent of Shavano. Standard route this time. Lourdes made it to the saddle; which was great. I can still think of more routes that I want to do.

Shavano Group Loop  Sucess!

Ascended Jones first than continued the loop to PT 13712, Tabeguache, Shavano and "Esprit Point". Some fun easy scrambling between Jones and PT 13712. Surprising dry in this part of the Sawatch still despite recent snows in the state. Shavano is mostly dry with just a little snow below the saddle with "Esprit Point". This was my 3rd ascent of Shavano.

Shavano - Southeast Slopes from Angel Campground

Shavano from Angel of Shavano Campground... nice to start out with some creative route finding. Not nice when the storms rolled and weren't able to complete the double with Tabeguache. Came down via Gulch trialhead trail and CO Trail back to Angel. Lots of sheep up in them hills.

Great Climb  Sucess!

Did the Angel of Shavano Snow climb. Still some snow left. Traversed to Tab. and came back down by glissading. It's quite a good workout.

4 times  Sucess!

6/12/05 - Standard route from Blank Gulch. Horrible weather (wind & snow) up high kept us from going on to Tabeguache. A real battle!

3/14/09 - Winter ascent from Angel of Shavano TH. Went up and over "Esprit Point".

1/23/16 - Winter ascent from Angel of Shavano TH. Went up and over "Esprit Point".

Another succesful climb of Shavano  Sucess!

I have summited Shavano 3 times now. This time I simply followed the standard trail from the Blank Gulch trailhead. Previous times, I summited via the Angel of Shavano.

Shavano-Tabeguache  Sucess!

Started from Blank Gulch. Climbed Mount Shavano first then traversed to Tabeguache Peak. Went back crossing W face of Shavano on unstable talus and loose scree escaping bad weather ... Definitely NOT a good alternative to going back over Shavano's summit. Overall: good hike, great views.
