Twice via TTT. Once via Cottonwood ridge from Deaf Smith. Huge day as the fire several years ago has made what was once my favorite trail into a bushwacking mess. Please go up there and trample out a trail! Great day still.
Climbed Broad's Fork and to the saddle between Dromedary and Sunrise. There was a big mountain goat. Climbed Dromedary and then back down and up Sunrise and met the goat again.
#2 - 8/20 via Broads' Fork w/ Dromedary

May 27, 2011: Did the Triple Traverse with Joe B, and Matt V. The snow, even the avy debris, was very soft in Tanners, so the going was slow.
May 16, 2009 - Did this peak as part of the Triple Traverse with a group of seven from SP. We had prime conditions.
Part of the Triple Traverse. Excellent Snow up the east ridge, not as much as I'd like down the west.
Came up Tanners with a big group from SP. Part of the Triple Traverse (double traverse for me). Went out through Broads Fork.
Usually part of a long traverse, the longest one day Sunrise to Sunset. 3 times as part of the Cottonwood ridge traverse, a half dozen triple traverses, even a few solo's!
Ascended a snow-free Tanners Gulch and ascended the E Ridge of Sunrise to the summit. Tanners without snow is awful and dangerous. Don't do it.
Climbed up Tanners Gulch and summited Dromedary, then traversed the ridge to the col and went up Sunrise. Sweet 3rd class climbing from the col, and an amazing uninterrupted 1500' glissade on corn snow for the descent!
Fun route with fun spring snow conditions.
as part of Walt Haas' annual Triple Traverse (which for me was a Double since I opted to skip Dromedary). I bit off almost more than I can chew doing this intimidating mountain as my first "real" snow climb (and my first winter/spring Elevener), and I considered bailing from Tanner's saddle, but I'm extremely glad I went through with it. The views of and from those peaks when snowy are unsurpassed, and then there's that awesome feeling you get when you successfully push your personal limits.
via Tanners Gulch / Triple Traverse

So intimidating from the saddle of it and Dromedary when it's covered in snow. Just start climbing.
