I usually sleep with it. If it's bear country, I put it in a waterproof sack and hang it in a tree. It's tough to find a good tree if you are high up, in which case I just sleep with it.

Re: 53 vs 58 cm ice axe
I am 6'1". I have a 70cm Raven for general mountaineering and it seems long when doing self belay on long steep routes. Great for glacier slogs and acceptable for everything else in modera...

Re: Time to Resurrect the Tall Persons Tent Question....
