 A return to Shav to nab Tab  

In 2009, I hiked Shavano via the "Angel Snow Route", which was a great climb, but the softening deep snow and dark growing clouds prevented me from attempting Tabeguache. At the time I didn't plan on revisiting Tabeguache, but now that the 58 14ers are within grasp, I returned with Tom to knock Tab off the list, this time hiking Shavano via the standard route.

First off, no snow on the entire standard route. Thunderstorms are starting to kick in, so plan on a very early start to hike both peaks well before noon. There's a lot of time spent above 13,500' tackling these peaks.
