Hiked this peak from Loveland Pass (also got "Cupid"), where the same conditions apply. There was little/no snow along the first portion of the trail and no navigation was necessary. After leaving Cupid and re-ascending the the high point before Grizzly, going on the West/right side of the point was easier than going over, but the snow wasn't deep enough to cover the rocks below so it was a slippery time. The final push up to Grizzy was very spotty, with some really deep snow and some rocks with only a dusting. The whole route was easy enough, and no snowshoes are necessary yet. Microspikes would help in some places but really aren't practical due to the amount of exposed rock in most places.
