Summit Lake to Spalding: straight forward, short route. Plenty of scramble opportunities closer to the ridge (c3) with c2 bypasses to the left. Dry. The snow route up Spalding is only continuous for a couple hundred feet.

Spalding to surrounding 13ers: dry, grassy tundra. Wide-open and easy to route find.

To W. Evans: Trail is in good shape, well-cairned. Hooks right at the sub-summit. Plenty of good scramble opportunities and options - moderately exposed C3 and a fun ridge line up to W. Evans and around to Evans. Drop right for the small notches or bypasses.

Descended the NE Face route - loose and heavily impacted/eroded, but easy enough to follow and still only c2.
