It'll depend a bit on your route & the conditions on the ground - which 
will be hard to predict beforehand. On average through the years, I'd 
guess that half of people send them home at East Glacier, and half carry 
them through The Bob. Generally, The Bob is less steep, so if you do 
need it, you'll probably only need it for short bits. Basically, I'd 
suggest making that call after you get through Glacier and pass through 
East Glacier... no need to decide that beforehand.
