|Peak:||Mt. Shavano (14er)|
|Date of Info:||11/22/2020|
Climbed Shav + Tab for my birthday. Wore spikes the whole way up (for efficiency purposes) except for a stretch on the traverse up where it was quite bare. Snow is deepest (1 ft?) in the woods on trail right before the traverse but pretty brief so snowshoes not required at all. Overally easy to follow trail because of the solid boot pack the whole way up in the woods. Pretty content with how dry the overall mountain was (especially higher up) as it made things easier to achieve Tabeguache which was the second peak we did. (See next report)
NOTE: remember to turn left at the second trail sign (CT/Shavano junction)! A lot of ppl keep going straight and lose time/get lost doing this.
