Made a step

Axe is required equipement for Alaska, might as well use it for a step.

Used 2 - 1” pipe U bolts from Depot

Shawn,

You should consider using an Axe with a Composite handle, it will weather better.

Great Idea! You might want to point the blade inward. :)

That will work, and a blade cover might be in order.
