DescriptionThe southeast face of Thor is strikingly beautiful and begs to be climbed. Seen from the hikers trail to Mt. Whitney it is hard not to trip over your feet as you stare at all the possible lines on this fetching mass.
Other than making a lasting impression in my mind and what I read in the RJ Secor High Sierra guide, I know nothing about this peak. I would be very curious to hear peoples impressions of the routes on this peak.
Routes here are mostly grade III and under, seems like a great place for an adventurous moderate, relatively close to the car. While others are continuing to trudge up to Whitney and Russell, you'd be roping up and likely have the peak to yourself.
