Rock and Mortor pavement removal

Hello everybody-

I've got a section of pavement next to my house that I originally thought was cracked concrete. It turns out that it is actually large rocks (about 1' x 8") all mortored together. Do you think I can break this up by striking the mortor with a 10lb sledge, and removing the rocks individually? Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot.

Use the sledge on an edge to break out one rock, then use a large (6' or better) pry bar to remove the rest.
