How long of an ice AXE do I need?

How long should an ice axe be? In general, technical ice tools are only available in one length (which can vary by brand/model, but is typically around 50 cm). But mountaineering ice axes are available in several lengths, usually from 55 to 75 cm (normally sold in 5 cm increments).

Do you need 2 ice axes?

Generally, hybrid axes are sized between 50-59cm, with a preference toward being too short rather than too long. When getting into very steep or vertical terrain, the route may require the use of two axes – generally one hybrid axe, and one ice tool; or potentially two ice tools for truly vertical terrain and beyond.
