Mount Shavano  Sucess!

My husband and I started the climb at 6:30 a.m. It wasn't too bad at first, but the higher we went, the more difficult it was. We finally made it to the top, didn't have a pen to sign the register, the dog cut his foot on a rock, it was snowing and we ran out of water. It is very rocky at the top. We had planned to summit Tebeguache on the same day, but due to our mishaps, we decided to save Tebeguache for another day.

Via Blank Gulch  Sucess!

Quite a steep ascent, but all good. A nice trail, on a nice day. Slightly bummed that the angel was melted out already due to the hot weather. Blank Gulch TH has been improved lately, so probably for that reason is a lower start in elevation than in the GR book. Be prepared for close to 6,000 vert for the Shavano/Tab combo!

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 your food.
