Short, easy route from the Colorado Trail trailhead near Little Molas Lake. Go in a northern direction towards the peaks linking trail segments and dry creeks as you go. On the way up I had a significant willow bash that I was able to avoid on the descent. Near the "Turkshead Peak"/"West Turkshead Peak" saddle find the trail and follow it up the saddle and across open slopes until it begins rising up Spencer Peak's west face. The remaining route is obvious. Loose rock abounds on this route but it's all Class 2. Sultan Mountain and Spencer Peak are obvious additions to the hike. I also did "West Turkshead Peak", a ranked 12er, by walking up the grassy slopes near the "Turkshead"/"West Turkshead" saddle.
