We parked at the Guanella Pass road closure(Naylor Lake turn-off) from Georgetown. At the switchback near BM 11096, we left the road and broke trail up the drainage. Many trees are down from the windstorm 2 days ago, but we didn't need snowshoes in the forest anyway. Up on the flats, we used snowshoes some in the willows, then veered left onto the slopes below Spalding. Not much snow on the high tundra or ridge to the summit!
