Blank Gulch  Sucess!

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.

feeding the rat  Sucess!

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.

shav and tab  Sucess!

Numbers 13 and 14 in one long day from blank gulch. Climbed them the day after having done oxford and belford. Beautiful mountains, and huge.

Shavano and Tab  Sucess!

Man, this was my hradest 14er yet considering it was my second climb. ha. Summited Shavano and Tab in one day. We did it pretty fast though. Round trip time was about 7 hours 50 mins.

Angel butt-kicking  Sucess!

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

East slopes from main trailhead  Sucess!

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!

Marmot at the Summit  Sucess!

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.

Re: Darn It!

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!

East Slopes with JP!  Sucess!

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!

Goat  Sucess!

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

Darn It!  Sucess!

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.

Shav &Tab  Sucess!

Tango! I'm glad you found your dog "rpace", you did do a lot of extra climbing. Shav and Tab on saturday then MTB at Hartman Rocks sunday turned out to be a pretty damn good weekend!

blank gulch to Tabeguache  Sucess!

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.

Shav and Tab  Sucess!

Successful day on Shav and Tab. Weather was cooperative and the glissade down the Angel was a nice touch.

Found my lost dog!  Sucess!

Extended my climb by looking for my dog for five hours, but found my dog and summited, so good day in the end!

Angel  Sucess!

We climed the Angel and skiied down our ascent route. The skiing in the Angel was fantastic; however, the snow cover directly off the summit was a bit thin. I banged my board up pretty good! Also, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, and unfortunately, I ran out of sunblock early in the day. I probably received one of the worst sunburns I've ever had!

A slog  Sucess!

Climbed the standard summer route until 12,500 feet or so (when the trail disappeared due to the snowfields). From there, we left the main trail, and bushwacked up some moderately steep and snowy slopes to the summit. The snow was soft and slushy both on the ascent and descent which meant lots of postholing, but we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to hike. The weather was perfect!
