This is a rock climbing trip for Climbing School graduates from this year or other recent years.  It is intended to be a fun, moderate outing to one of our favorite climbing areas so that graduates can continue to improve their climbing skills and get a reward for their hard work during the school!  Tres Piedras is located about 90 minutes north of Los Alamos and features low-angle slab and friction climbing on beautiful granite knobs and slopers, mostly bolt-protected with some gear placements.  We will set some top rope climbs in the 5.7 to 5.10 range.

Mt. Shavano (14,229') is the southernmost 14er in the Sawatch Range. It's east bowl sports a very prominent three-fingered snowfield - the Angel of Shavano. The "Angel of Shavano" is a snow feature that sort of looks like an angel with arms and wings (see photo). When in condition, it offers a moderate-angled 3000' ski descent.
 
Friday night, we'll stay the night in a Salida motel and then head to Mt. Shavano early Saturday morning to summit, then ski or snowboard down the Angel!

Ute Mountain Car Camp and Hike April 18-19

For many years as I drove past San Antonio Mountain on my way to Alamosa I looked to the East and wondered what that obvious mountain was that almost looked like San Antonio's sister.  I later discovered it was named Ute Mountain.  I had climbed San Antonio several times, but didn't know how to get to Ute.  Luckily fellow LAM mountaineer Jason Halladay had posted a well written SummitPost route description.  I think it's time to check out the mountain!
