I have been wanting to do this hike for a while, and it was fun, fun, fun!

This was the first time that I had ever been on the Tanner Trail, and I wandered around the parking lot for a little bit until I found the trail. The upper part of the trail had some icy sections, so we put on microspikes for a bit. The first 1.5 miles of the trail were pretty steep, and it was washed out in a couple of places.

It was a fun scramble up to Cardenas Butte. There was some decision making a few times to find a good route up, especially near the summit. If you look around and choose a good route there is nothing sketchy.

The views at the top are awesome, and are among the best in the canyon imho.

The last 1.5 miles of the climb out was pretty steep, gaining about 1,700' of elevation gain, and the tread wasn't the best.

Based on the summit register this one isn't hiked too often -- the last entry in the logbook before today was @Jim_H back in September of last year.

This is a nice summit, and I am sure glad that I did it!
