Climb the arete/roofs on the right side of Thor's Hammer. This route is listed as 'Ayatollah So' in Ken Nichol's Hooked on Traprock however it is likely that Ken attempted to renamed the route to stoke his own ego given comments in his book.

Should this say to the left of Thor's Hammer? There aren't any roofs or arĂȘtes right of the Thor's Hammer in the photo??? Sep 5, 2014

Its the arete/edge of the roof. So Thor's goes along the inside of the dihedral/roofs, Lightening Strike ascends the outside corner/lip of roofs, to the right of Thor's Hammer. Sep 5, 2014
