A5 Hammer

Early A5 hammer designed, made and used by John Middendorf. He used it on his first ascent of Trango Tower and on many of his ascents in Yosemite. The A5 hammer became a staple on the aid climbers rack in the 1980's replacing the previously popular Chouinard hammer. Donated by John Middendorf.
