Took the standard Grays and Torreys loop, started at 5:15am on 10/01 (a Thursday). There was very, very little human traffic (we saw less than 20 other people the whole day). Ended up being a completely beautiful day with hardly a cloud in the sky. Visibility was great from both peaks, despite some nearby wildfire smoke. Absolutely no micro-spikes or any snow gear needed, though clothing layers for below freezing temperatures were needed. It was RIDICULOUSLY windy at the saddle and on the summit of Grays. (Not much wind at all on the summit of Torreys.) Recommend bundling way up, lots of layers, face protection from the wind, and thick gloves (hand warmers were a lifesaver during the windier gusts).
