Matt, I was part of the group in your 3rd pic down (zoomed in shot of angel from last year). I remember we climbed it the same day. Tab looks so draining from the top of Shavano, with all that softening snow to deal with (I didn‘t make it there last year too). No doubt Tab is many climber‘s nemesis. Good luck next time.

Hi Matt, thanks for the timely report. I plan to do Shavano this Friday. I also live in Colorado Springs and was wondering about travel time to the trailhead. How long would you say it took from here to there? I have to drive down the day of my hike so it will be a long day. Thanks in advance!

I think it took me about 3 hours give or take 20 or 30 minutes.
