You can still buy your own single subscription. But now, you can also buy a single subscription for someone else in your organization, and multiple subscriptions for your team. With the latest release, online purchasers can now also:
After the purchase, you will become the administrator of the account. On axe.deque.com, you will see multiple tabs for managing your account for axe DevTools Pro in addition to the Welcome tab. You are now able to see your active plan, manage billing, and provision users.
You can also download all your invoices in PDF format. The PDF invoices are from a third party and are not accessible. We are creating an HTML accessible version that will be in an upcoming release. In the meantime, if you need the PDF invoice to be made accessible, please request the accessible PDF by emailing email@example.com.
For the SaaS version hosted by Deque, you can now add, delete and invite users from the axe.deque.com portal under the User Access tab. The system will automatically track your number of subscriptions and open subscriptions still yet to allocate.
For our existing Enterprise customers with a Private Cloud or On Premise installation this functionality is not yet available. We are working very hard to release similar functionality in the near future.

What better way to spend (part of) a rainy Sunday than throwing steel and splintering boards in the company of friends?... It's good, clean, safe (though still thrilling) fun. I can't wait to go again.
How do you choose the best ice axe for your needs? Whether you are looking for an ultralight model for ski mountaineering, one with a modular head for steeper snow routes and complex glacier climbs, or a solid all-arounder to handle the full gambit of routes and conditions, we highlight some key factors to consider below.
While it is decreasing with time all too often, we see people with ice axes that are too long for them. Axes that are too long (relative to a person's height) present a problem; however, running a little on the shorter side is rarely, if ever, a big deal.
Somehow the mantra "the absolute longest an ice axe should be is that the spike hits your ankle" is occasionally twisted into "the spike should hit your ankle," and a distinction should be noted. There is a common misperception that climber should want their spike to touch the ground while walking in lower angle or flat terrain while using their axe like a cane. Instead, most climbers SHOULD aim for the spike to touch the ground in terrain that is 25-40 degrees where you actually want a third point of contact to increase stability.
The problem with a model that works better in flatter or lower angle terrain is it is too long in steeper terrain as it raises the climber's center of balance and makes it less useful for increasing stability. Not only do you have performance in lower angle terrain where you don't need it, but you would be better off using a trekking pole. A model that is too long hinders use in steeper terrain where you actually want to use it.
For example, if you are traversing a steeper slope where you need a third point of contact, your axe should be in your uphill hand. If your axe is too long, your hand will be too high to effectively increase your stability. Shorter models also pack nicer for ski-mountaineering, early-season backpacking, and alpine rock climbing, where 60cm should be a maximum length for even the tallest users. Typically, 45-50cm in length is ideal.
Most general mountaineering axes use a positive curve pick, also sometimes called a classic curve; this is where the pick makes a slight downward arching curve downward. This design is popular because it strikes an excellent balance of steep snow performance and self-arresting. Positive curve designs self-arrest nearly as well as a neutral curved model but climb steeper snow and ice FAR more securely. When swung into higher angle ice, it doesn't clean as easily as a reverse curve design.
A neutral curve is exactly like it sounds: the pick comes straight out from the head of the shaft with no droop. A neutral curve pick is the best for self-arresting as it is as smooth as they get for this application but are far less secure when swung into the ice. (An example is a Grivel Pamir). Nowadays, there are very few models with a true neutral curve pick. We used to feature a handful of them in our review but currently don't have any.
A reverse curve pick is best for climbing ice and steeper snow. This design starts trending down like a positive curve, but commonly at an increased angle, then curves the other way back up. This shape makes removing the pick from ice far easier after it has been driven in. The disadvantage is models with this design are the least "smooth" of the three when self-arresting and give the climber a "bumpy" feeling stop. We are not saying that you can't or shouldn't be self-arresting with a reverse curve pick; it's just not ideal. An example is a Petzl Sum'Tec, or any ice-tool geared towards winter waterfall ice climbing.
The CEN-B (basic) and CEN-T (technical) ratings are based on six tests to the shaft and pick that are supposed to mimic the action of climbing and any potential forces applied to the tool. For example, a B rating from the shaft in a way the mimics a Deadman T-slot anchor to 280kg and a T rating needs to be able to withstand 400kg. A trend is B and T ratings are now being more commonly referred to as UIAA Type 1 (CEN-B) or Type 2 (CEN-T). While the names are different, these two ratings have more or less the same tests and strength requirements as the CEN-B/T tests.
For an axe to be CEN-T or Type 2 rated model, it must pass all six tests to both a T rated pick and shaft. If it only gets a T rating in one category, then it gets the B rating overall. Some axes, especially those with modular picks, will show a rating on both the shaft and their pick. This is because your axe could be B or T rated depending on your pick selection. For example, Petzl Sum'Tec has a T-rated shaft and a B-rated pick that results in a B-rated ice axe. Do you need a T-rated axe for general mountaineering? Certainly not. Do you need one for harder alpine routes? Not necessarily, a T-rated axe will just be stronger.
Steel is the most popular metal for heads and picks used in manufacturing today. It is the most durable but also the heaviest metal used. Steel is easily the best for more involved alpine objectives where pounding pickets, chopping steps, and penetrating firm ice might be required. It also allows more effective self-arresting and better performance while swinging into firmer snow and neve. While titanium is stronger than steel, it is actually softer and thus bends more easily. Steel is only slightly more durable than titanium; because of this, steel picks are better suited to ice and mixed routes.
Aluminum is lighter than steel or titanium; that alone is a reason to use it in certain situations. However, it won't stand up to abuse like titanium or steel. It is best for ski mountaineering, adventure racing, and early season backpacking, where you won't be climbing a lot of steeper snow and ice or pounding a lot of pickets. Aluminum is best for "lighter duty" applications such as early-season backpacking trips.
Titanium is lighter than steel and heavier than aluminum. Titanium is stronger metal than steel, but it is also slightly softer and thus is easier to bend but won't break or shatter like aluminum. Titanium has nearly all the same applications as steel unless the user is particularly hard on their ice axe. We've reviewed titanium models in the past, but there aren't any currently in our review. Titanium models work great from a performance standpoint, but they are typically only marginally lighter, but as the material is more costly, they end up being significantly more expensive.
While a curved shaft in more traditional all-around mountaineering axes used to be unusual, it has become more common over the last 4-6 years, and now roughly half the models in our review feature a curved shaft to some extent. Its primary advantage is a curved shaft gives better clearance when swinging an ice axe (Piolet Traxion) into ice, with the climber's hand on the lower portion of the shaft. This curve is also useful when climbing steep ice or climbing in and out of crevasses or pulling bergschrunds. It keeps your hands warmer and drier by keeping them out of the snow while in Piolet Mache (mid dagger, hands on the shaft below the pick, useful for snow 45-60 degrees). 041b061a72
