2 for 1. 44 min scramble down Shav and back up to top of Tab. Well worth the effort. Could hear coyotes howling in the valley below.
Climbed with Shavano, back over Shavano at the end. A long day, I was really tired at the end, that's for sure.
Did Shav/Tab together. Beautiful day!!!
Wrote the full report on the Shav site:
did hte shavano to tab traverse. then ran across the ridgline over the 13ers summits on the ridge to the east of tab/shav. lots of lightning and hail coming off the mountain.
45 minutes from the summit of Mount Shavano. Very reasonsable and fun. Was rrreally windy, but the ridge between the peaks did a great job of blocking it.
Did Shavano and Tab. Another long day but felt so good to accomplish!
I reached the summit at 10:15. The view of Browns Gulch is very pretty. The weather still looked reasonable by that time, but I took a few pictures and then headed back to Shavano, where I had lunch. There was a little rain when I had descended below treeline. I got back to the trailhead at 2:30.
came over Shavano in one long day day after doing oxford and belford. Fourth fourteener in two days. My fourteenth.
Sweet traverse to the summit from Shavao. Not too hard, and it didnt take too long either. I highly recomend it if you have already summited Shavano.
14er summit #31!
Climbed from Shavano. Incredible weather for a hike!
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.
