General Sizing Guidelines

  • 60 cm  5'6 and shorter
  • 68 cm  5'6 to roughly 6'2
  • 75 cm  6'2 to 6'6

Depending on the steepness of the slopes you'll be climbing, you may want to adjust this (go shorter for front-pointing on steep ice, longer for upright glacier walking). But this is a good reference for the standard routes on peaks like Mt. Rainier or Denali.
