Thor Peak (12,028 feet (3,666 m)) is in the northern Teton Range, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Mount Moran is 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east. The summit is the eighth highest in the Teton Range. Several semi permanent snowfields as well as the Triple Glaciers are located on the east and northern slopes of the mountain. While the easiest route up the mountain, the south slope, is only rated a class 4, the mountain's remoteness and difficulty of approach makes it a challenging mountain to summit.
