Damn. This is a sad day for sure.

So many amazing stories. Such an incredible man. One of my true heroes.


My son Layton and I will burn candles and incense tonight, to help him on his way.

Climb high Layton.

The article says he died in poverty due to his medical bills. A sad ending to what must have been an incredible life.

The INCREDIBLE LIFE part is far more important than the poverty part.


Although it can be helpful in so many ways in our final years,

The sweetest sound I ever heard. While climbing on Lumpy Ridge one day long ago there was Layton one route over placing pins with that wonderful musical note as they tighten up in the rock.This was well into the clean era. I missed that sound. Never saw him before or since. I'll always remember Kor making mountain music. RIP
