Route was close to 1/2 firm snow and 1/2 dry trail/rocks; not icy at all. We ended up ascending all the way from Loveland Pass, over Cupid, and to Grizzly without traction or flotation, but did put micros on for the descent and traverse to Sniktau - just left them on for a few scrambling moves along the ridge and where the route was dirt/rock. Even snow-covered, it's easy to follow the trails other than the rocky section south of Cupid and the last couple hundred feet of Grizzly; stay close to the ridge lines (but off cornices) and you can't go wrong.
