Summited Sunlight and Windom on 8/6 and the Eolus-North Eolus combo on 8/7. Microspikes were very helpful but a mountaineering axe is no longer necessary. Trekking poles were helpful but not necessary. If you want to bring some sort of protection/traction for the snow I would recommend microspikes over anything else. The snow you encounter is all lower on the mountains. There is a snowfield just before the Eolus catwalk which was the most inconvenient place I had to deal with snow. Bring your bug spray for camping in the basin!
