Bushwhacked from the main trail up the gulch - still a viable route for sure! After doing Shavano twice in as many years, I was glad to get this one done another way. Here's the trip report.
when we got there on the 8th SAR was pulling someone off the Angel after the lost control on a glissade. On our climb we could see the SAR tracks from the sled they used it was a good reminder of the importance of being careful even on 'easy' peaks
Traversed over from Shavano after climbing the Angel. All the spring snow made it a fun day in the mountains.
Cold, clear and snowy!
This TH is no longer open, so glad I got to see the scenery over there.
Combo with Shavano on a beautiful day.
Tagged Tabe`s summit after summiting Shavano in sunny and cool weather, great views.
Long hike from Blank's Cabin, over Shavano (for the second time) to bag Tab. Beautiful day with great views from the summit, and great fellowship with friends from Christ Church, including kilimanjaro1 (congrats, BJ).
Same to you Jeff! We all deserve a pat on the back for that one! Great time!
This was my 3rd time up Shavano, but first time to make it over to Tabeguache. Hiked with a group of church friends and ran into tons of Cross Country climbers from Kansas. Great weather and a great day to finally bag this- my final 14er to bag in the Sawatch.
Way to go, BJ. Congrats. Great time in the mountains with you and the rest!
We ascended the Angel to the summit of Shavano, then continued on to Tabeguache. What a treat! The eastern ridge of Tab still held plenty of snow allowing for a fun snow ridge walk to the summit and a great glissade. Partners: Deb, Jill & Krystol.
Hiked Shavano and Tabeguache, sometime in the late 90s.
Reached the summit from Jennings avoiding the damaged route. Not the brightest idea to descend McCoy Creek, but we survived. =)
Did the West Ridge trip as noted by Aaron Johnson. Fun and very much off the beaten path.
Hard day out. Wasn't feeling it but pushed through it alright. Completly & absolutely wiped by the time I got back to the truck. Traverse over to Tab was easy enough but bottomed out hard on the way back to Shavano. 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.
Wonderfully calm and relatively warm on top. Nice views.
