Climbed Shavano and Tabeguache yesterday via the standard route with gregory_fischer. The trail is snow-free the entire way, and Tab has a few small snowfields on the traverse, but they are completely avoidable. Be sure to allow yourself enough time to get back over Shavano before the weather moves in (it built very quickly yesterday and we saw people still climbing back over Shavano under menacing skies).

I will say that I CANNOT IMAGINE what it must have been like climbing this route earlier in the season before the deadfall was cleared. Congratulations if you did this, and a big, big thank you to those who helped clear this route of deadfall.
