LEGENDARY CLIMBER LAYTON KOR DIES
By: Adam Roy
Layton Kor, the legendary climber who established some of America’s hardest and most frightening routes during the 1950s and 60s, died on Sunday night. Kor, 75, had been fighting kidney failure and prostate cancer.
Born in Canby, Minnesota, Kor began his climbing career in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon, where he established bold free and aid climbs like The Naked Edge and T2. Beginning in the 1960s, he took his act to the deserts of southern Utah, where he made the first ascents of cutting-edge routes on Moab’s sandstone spires, including the Kor-Ingalls route on Castleton Tower and Finger of Fate on the Titan, both of which were later featured in the seminal book Fifty Classic Climbs of North America. 
Kor essentially quit climbing in 1968 when he became a Jehovah’s Witness, but came back to the sport later in his life. “Climbing is hard to give up,” he would say. “It’s just as hard as giving up cigarettes.”
In his later years, Kor struggled with medical bills, including daily medications and thrice-weekly dialysis. Despite the efforts of fellow climbers who organized fundraisers for his benefit, his biographer, Cameron Burns, said that Kor died “essentially in poverty.”
