Ascent Trip Report

Made it to the top of Shavano with a plan of going on to Tabegauche. But was feeling the altitude and hadn't eaten properly. Had started at 9 a.m. and summited Shavano around 1:15 p.m. Going much too slow. Also wanted to avoid the rain/snow that was forecast for after 3 p.m. Wouldn't have been back to Shavano summit by then. (Clouds gathered, but precipitation never materialized.) So decided to come back for Tabegauche later. Got back to the car probably around 5:30-6 p.m. (Did not have watch, and phone was dead.) So averaging around one mile per hour as a rough estimate for the 9.25 mile trip.
