An 8 hour loop  Sucess!

I thought I'd use Thor Peak as a warm up hike for my hiking season. I got more than I asked for. I went up via LBSL and the slope, approach that beat the tar out of me. While on the plateau, I climbed all 5 peaks and the peaks lower below. The Southern peak has a serious class 4 to ascent the summit. Thor Peak is the one all the way to the North, not really visible from the plateau below. I came down toward Lone Pine Lake. I read there was a trail that connects the plateau to the Whitney Trail, but I did not find it. I came down the East slope to the lake, but half way down it was a very tough cross country hiking through the brush.

From Whitney Portal  Sucess!

I had been up here on May 21, but got snowed off the mountain (four inches in about a half hour, more on the way. I bailed.). So back again. Lone Pine Peak the day before, then Thor. Two sand hills in two days! Where did all the snow go?

First peak in the Sierra Nevadas  Sucess!

Great day with my peak baggin brother wood. Highest mountain I've peak to date. Also my first mountain in California and the Sierra Nevada's great early spring scramble. Wood had bad altitude sickness on the way down. Preparing to Summit Whitney via the mountaineers route this week.

Stemwinder in winter  Sucess!

Great climb and a good winter option. South facing and gets lots of sun. The climb was mostly snow free. Snow on the last section of exposed 4th class made it more challenging.

Southeast Couloir  Sucess!

Beautiful day with only patches of snow on the slope above the couloir. Also climbed the two pinnacles immediately south of the summit.

Stem Wander  Sucess!

Interesting alpine climb; not so classic but I did enjoy it. Too bad we felt we needed a rope a couple of times, would love to solo it.

Stemwinder with Pops  Sucess!

Took my Dad up this route for his 1st alpine climb, 1st multi-pitch (kinda), 1st trip into whitney portal, 1st trip above 12K...it was alot of 1st's for him. He had a blast. Good route, fun and mostly 3rd class. The so-called exposed slab move is basic...people blow that up more than it is...my 0.02

Sierra Vista  Sucess!

I have climbed it fourteen times, ascending and descending various routes. My favorite route was via Pinnacle Ridge, after climbing Wotans Throne. Thor Peak offers spectacular views of surrounding higher peaks (Whitney, Muir, McAdie, Irvine, Russell, Carillon, etc.).
