I just bought a 50cm Venom hammer as a second tool to my 65cm Raven for north Cascades ski mountaineering and climbing. I'm shorter than you but my reasoning is that I'll be skinning with poles on anything under ~45 degrees and if it gets to the point that I want an axe it's to plunge up to the pick on steep faces. I don't need anything approaching cane length for that. When I have some more money I'll replace my Raven with a Venom adze.

When I was climbing 4 days a week in the gym in Evolv Predators I'd toss them in the wash (with cold water) weekly. I never had a problem with construction or fit and it kept the smell reasonable. I also dusted my feet with chalk before putting them on to keep them from getting too sweaty.
