Hey Adam,
Re ice axe S of E. Glacier - During an average snow year, I think trekking 
poles would be enough, however, considering the amount of snow that has 
fallen so far this year, I would carry an ice axe to Lincoln.  As I recall, 
there were some good climbs S of Benchmarks.  Obviously it depends on how 
long the snow last on the ground.  Muddy trails can be slick also.  But, for 
peace of mind, I would carry one (again) at least to Lincoln, and further if 
their is still snow beyond Lincoln.
Happy and safe trails,
Flat Feet
