|Peak:||Mt. Shavano (14er)|
|Date of Information:||10/19/2013|
No snow to reach parking lot and then maybe an inch through the woods up to tree line. Deeper snow that required traction in photo 20 from the route description as you approach 13,000. Increasing levels of snow hidden in the talus as you approach the summit, but most could be avoided by sticking to the rocks.
The traverse over to Tabegauche became increasingly snowy with reaching its summit requiring going through deep snow at points.
Overall a tough outing given the consistently very high winds above 13,000‘
