Tanner was originally injured on June 12 th 2008 in Morrison Colorado. It was a very hot day and he on was on his last climb before the hike down to Willys Wings. They were finishing up on the Tree Slab when he peeled off the rock and fell. He suffered a severe fracture to his right leg and was piggy backed down to the road. In the years to come he finished high school and joined the United States Marine Corps. In the Marines he had several surgeries to correct my leg. After separation from theMarines he had 8 surgeries in 5 years resulting in infection, lack of mobility and the choice of amputation or fusion. Knowing he could live his life to the fullest after amputation he decided to walk in and crutch out one last time. His right leg was amputated on January 11, 2021.
