There is probably a way to do this without first converting to base 10, but I'm not super sure how to do it.

Anyway, first convert 45 from base 6 to base 10, which is $$5+4\cdot6=29$$

The sum of the integers 1 to 29 base 10 is $$\frac{(29)(30)}{2}=435$$. In base 6 that would be equal to $$\boxed{2003}$$, which is our answer.
