I wonder how many of the young cragsters of today can fully appreciate what the great Mr Layton Kor was doing back in the 60's.
Layton Kor was climbing a full zone above his contemporaries.
Today, climbers follow the written, established path.
Think about doing FA's in Eldo, RMNP or any other of a multitude of crags, desert towers or walls that Kor did, onsite, before Friends, Stoppers, Hexes, while wearing Kronhoffers.
Not to take anything away from todays hotshots, but compared to Kor, so many of todays top climbers pale in comparison.
I still want a Planetary Defense shirt.
