Climbed with Shavano from Blank Gulch TH.
Picked up the summit after a sunrise ascent of Shavano last summer.
Finally tagged the top while my son waited for me on the summit of Shavano. It was my third attempt on Tabegauche. Last year I was turned around by weather once and nausea the second time. Glad to have it out of my system.
Great day! The ridge between Shav/Tab wasn't nearly as bad as it looked. Actually a quick trip over and back.
Perfect weather. Great views all around, traverse to Tab and back over Shav wasn't as bad as it is made out to be. Great weekend in the Mtns!
a fine day indeed! ditto what Mots010 said about Shavano: Successful day on Shav and Tab. Weather was cooperative and the glissade down the Angel was a nice touch.
Successful day on Shav and Tab. Enjoyed the glissade down the angel.
A repeat climb, we chose a different route... lots of snow and cornices as we traversed the tricky ridge. The snow was more sparce under the summit- thus making our final pitch more difficult for footing & our ice axes. Nerves were higher than expected, but after an awesome 1,000 foot glissade, we were all smiles!:-)
Did the standard route over Shavano & back with my daughter; made for a long day. My 20th 14er. A nice day.
I good class 2 hike. Best if you can car pool and descend Shavano's east face. . . if you want to do them both.
lots of folks out hiking
Went for a direct ascent up Tabegauche a few clicks to the left of the left shoulder. Was about to get on the ridge and saw a big thunderhead rollin in..Got pounded with m and m size hail on the way down the inside of that shoulder in a skree feild. When we got to the base of the mountain by the lake it cleared up to bright and beautiful skies and about 80F. Fun time. will hopefulyl be able to go back and finish it soon.
Over to Shavano & back in snow as my companion wouldn't circle summit
Great climb! Sadly blew out my old Vasques low on the mountain. That duct tape is a miracle invention!
Traversed over from Shavano, travelled through snow most of the way, really clear day.
Returned with Mountin Girl to bag Tab after turning back last year due to weather. Very cool hike over the saddle to the summit and back.
With "Dude, that must hurt". The forecast almost made me stay home. Glad I did'nt!
Climbed with Shavano via the Blank Gulch trail
Made it over from Shavano via Blank Gulch. Quicker traverse than it looks, since you've just gone about 5,000 vert for Shavano, it may look REALLY FAR AWAY...don't quit! Keep going! It's easy.
