Black Diamond Yosemite Hammer.
The Black Diamond Yosemite Hammer was introduced in '66 when big wall climbing was in the early stage of development and popularity. The hammer features an oiled hickory handle that reduces vibration and ensures an excellent grip, making it a great choice for big wall climbers.

Also equipped with a replaceable 13 mm (1/2 in) webbing and a shoulder-length runner, the Yosemite hammer enhances its reliability and proves that you can never go wrong with a classic. So, whether you are a budding or a seasoned big wall climber, you can definitely depend on the Black Diamond Yosemite Hammer to get the job done.

If you are going to be placing pins or hand drilling on your next big wall adventure or first ascent death mission and you think you don't need the Yosemite Hammer... you should buy the Yosemite hammer and hit yourself in the head with it repeatedly... maybe that will knock some sense into you!!! Then you will realize YOU NEED THIS THING. The square head starts to make sense once you you're torqued into a side cramping right angle of doom, teetering in your aiders on a manky copperhead trying to paste a beak into a right angling corner while praying you don't poop yourself. And that little hole on the sharp end of the hammer is for your funkness, and I don't mean your George Clinton p-funk swagger, I mean the slender strand of wire that the follower uses to remove that expensive piton rack of yours so you can go pound it in another cliff later. I've also used mine to break a frozen padlock on my garage, and think of the steeze if you bring it to your next carpentry gig, or wear it to the bar as a necklace...PIMP.
Pretty much standard issue. The dampening handle seemed to work pretty well after a few days of nailing. As far as lumps of metal on the ends of sticks go, this one's an ass kicker.
Nothing you can buy in the local hardware store can compare to this hammer, built by climbers for AID climbing, enough said.
I'd hammer in the morning! Good workhorse hammer. I always know my BD-Yo will pound that pin in!
