Layton Kor, one of the most prolific and accomplished American climbers of the 1960's, passed away on April 21, 2013. His visionary climbs and epic stories were a driving force in my own development as a climber in the late 70's and 80's.
"Gripping a stirrup, pace-setter Kor creeps below the Finger of Fate, a pinnacle with difficult overhangs that juts from the tower halfway to the top." Layton Kor on the first ascent of The Titan. From National Geographic Magazine (November 1962) about the 1962 ascent of The Titan in Utah's Fisher Towers by Kor, Huntley Ingalls, and George Hurley.
