The goal going into the day was the Tanner brothers, Cardenas and Escalante, then Coronado Butte and if we were still feeling good and the sun had not won yet Battleship, which quickly became well maybe Sinking Ship and then lets call it a day after Coronado.

After a 3:30 Wake up, we were on Tanner just before four a.m. and heading down with headlamps. In hindsight, we would have started at 3:30 a.m., but I was worried about getting down the trail for the first time in early morning with headlamps and wanted to shorten our amount of time in the dark, as the hike description described the trail as washed out in many places and hard to follow. I should have listened to @bifrost who told me the trail was fine for headlamps , because it was easy to follow and in pretty good shape too (for the short portion we did at least).

Cardenas was up first. Easy summit, straightforward and fun, with great views. Then is was the pleasant ridgeline stroll to Escalante, which proved to be another fun little canyon summit. The "jump" was fun and the summit offered some more great views. From the summit, it was the slightly annoying off trail trek back to the trail. I swear not one of those rocks on that ridgeline is firmly attached to the earth. After hitting the trail, it was a quick jaunt to the top. A little warm here and there, but not too bad. After a quick recharge at the car, it was on to Coronado Butte.
