A very nice day to climb. A dry walk up to about 11,600 ft, then a skin to the bottom of the angle. From there crampons made for an easey ascent to the summit of Shavano. There were quite a few folks sitting on top when I got there. A short stay and then a dry down climb to the Shav/Tab saddle.
I was able to skin to the summit of Tab, then a short but nice ski back to the saddle.
I was able to ski a track through the rocks to about 13,800 from the top of Shav but then down climbed about 200 vert to the saddle south of the summit where I could ski to the bottom of the angle gully. From here it was a short post hole jaunt to dry ground and a long walk to the truck. The wind was bad going up the angle but calmed down above 13,800.
