Thor Peak, South Face, Lucifer’s Hammer. In September, Bruce Bindner, Em Holland and I climbed Lucifer’s Hammer (III, 5.10a) which starts from Odin’s Wrath, a route we climbed the previous year (AAJ 1997, p. 142). From the flake ledge on top of the first pitch above the Pink Perch, Odin’s Wrath goes up and left. Lucifer’s Hammer goes straight up for six more pitches. There are six bolts, three at belays and three for protection.
