An enjoyable day outing from Whitney portal. Climb the obvious couloir splitting the south east face of Thor Peak. Once at the top of the couloir, head out onto the large summit plateau, head right towards the true summit.

Mostly class 2 with a couple of short class 3 steps. Very enjoyable as a winter route. Either descend the way you came, or head down scree/talus slopes to the west depositing you at Lower Boy Scout Lake


Follow the main Mt. Whitney trail for about 2.5 miles. If you reach the log crossing you have gone too far. The mountain and the route are easily visible from the trail. Once you are close to the couloir, head off the trail and up into the couloir.
