If you're going to be that close, not riding the Beartooth and Chief Joseph would be a mistake (IMO), so long as you and the wife are both reasonably comfortable with corners.

Ice axe or mountaineering axe? And if the latter, what size?

I've got an unused, 85cm BD Raven that could use a new home--I goofed the sizing, as I'm nowhere near tall enough for an 85cm axe.
