Did the Carbonate --> Cyclone --> Lo Carb --> Grizzly loop today with my dog Fawkes. He had no problem on the class 3 downclimb from Lo Carb to the Grizzly saddle (DISCLAIMER: Fawkes is not your average dog! I left my Golden at home for a reason). Went straight up the Carbonate ridge from my parking spot. The bushwhack was at times sucky, but once above 11.7k the ridge was easy and largely solid grass/talus. The descent off of Grizzly is long and tedious, and until about a mile from the car, there isn't really a trail, just less willowy and boggy sections than others.
