Description 

Sledgehammer has a very high concentration of routes on it. It almost feels like a giant boulder, but all routes need to be roped. Routes range from very well protected bolted routes, to trad routes, to bold non-protected face climbing. Fixed anchors are available for most climbs.

Getting There 

Follow the area directions to the main area near Turtle Rock. When you are at the viewpoint mentioned, walk down towards Turtle Rock. Sledgehammer is hard to pick out at this point, but it will be apparent when you near it. It is a giant triangular-shaped boulder with routes on all sides.

I Think I'm Going To Hurle 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  SD : Iron Mountain : Sledgehammer
This route follows a prominent dike on the east face of Sledgehammer. Follow the obvious line through 6 bolts to a fixed anchor. This is very well protected and has fun moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
