Start as Dave's Diagonal, but instead of traversing left move up and slightly right on a tricky flake. Layback the flake and find what feet you can-awkward. Some small pinch holds are on the steep face to the left of the flake. Shorter folks may have to layback using more of the little holds on the face while taller climbers may use both the intermittently positive flake and the holds while making a couple cruxy rock on moves. Pretty darn sequential either way. Finish with steep climbing on slightly lichenish slopers.


Sledgehammer NW face. 3rd sport route from left on face. Shares start with Dave's Diagonal. Thanks Brent has its own anchor.


3 bolts. A bit scary. 1st bolt is quite high. Getting to third and anchors is more than a bit sporty. Definitely verging on PG on the pro overall, and some pretty full value moves away from the immediate vicinity of the bolts. Nothing really to hit though.
