  • The standard route for Tabeguache starts at the Blank Gulch trailhead and goes over the summit of Shavano.
  • Although often an afterthought to climbing Shavano, Tabeguache offers superior views of the rest of the Sawatch Range to the north.
"The climb from Shavano wasn't as painful as it looked. Was able to avoid reclimbing Shavano by traversing talus around to the east ridge before dropping straight to the Angel for a glissade down. " - Christopher, Jun 14, 2017
"I climbed Mount Shavano and Tabeguache Peak with the amazing Amy Croudip, and my good friend Julio Soto. It was a beautiful warm and clear day. We also met two other people that continued with us for a portion of the day. On our decent the winds kicked up and was a sustained 30 mph, with gusts of 40-50 mph. You would try to take a step and the wind would blow you in the opposite direction. Made things extra fun and interesting." - IanWright, Jul 6, 2016
"It was a fantastic day at the southern end of the Sawatch Range. Conditions were good with some unusual clouds that danced around the ridges, quickly forming and dissipating which added great drama to the hike. After Shavano, I went on to Tabeguache Peak , then back over Shav to Esprit Point. " - WaxDr, Aug 7, 2014
