My copy reads "bear" instead of "beat" in the second set. The closest meanings are therefore "carry" and "bear".

Grizzly (or grizzled) and leaden might mean "grey" ("under a leaden sky", or "his beard was grizzled"). And leaden can mean heavy as well ("after running a mile, his legs felt leaden"). But grizzly does not mean heavy in any context.
