Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Layton Kor is pre-eminent in American mountaineering. He is considered the best rock climber of his generation, and his list of first ascents of technically difficult rock climbs, both free and aid, is perhaps unmatched by any American climber. In this book Kor tells the story in his own words of these groundbreaking and suspenseful climbs.

Supplementing Kor's narrative are twenty-three accounts written by other leading climbers of the 1960s and 1970s, describing ascents they did with Kor: Royal Robbins, Fred Beckey, Pat Ament, Chris Bonington, Steve Roper, Huntley Ingalls, and many more share their perspectives.

Kor's climbs have become some of the most famous routes in the world—the Naked Edge in Eldorado Canyon, the Diamond on Longs Peak, the Salathe Wall on El Capitan in Yosemite, the North Face of the Eiger in the Alps…the list goes on. Written in a straighforward and engaging style, and accompanied by stunning, historical color photographs, Beyond the Vertical is a must-have for all rock climbers and armchair mountaineers alike.

About the Author

Layton Kor is one of the most legendary climbers of the 1960′s, the golden age of rock climbing.  He put up many new routes across his home state of Colorado and around the world.  Layton also authored the first edition of the book Beyond the Vertical, in 1983, which is now a collector’s item.

Format: Hardcover
This book chronicles the climbing life of a person who was, at his prime, one of the very best rock climbers in the world. His story is told by a series of essays by other top climbers recounting their climbs with him, interspersed with his commentary. It ends with an essay by Kor describing why he gave up serious climbing, and how he redirected his life in a spiritual way. The photos of his climbs are astonishing. An excellent read, giving insight to participation in an extreme sport and lifestyle.

Format: Hardcover
Beyond the Vertical is a wonderfully done book. The photos jump off the pages. The narative is very well done and anyone who climbs or has ever wanted to climb will love this book.
Layton Kor is the father of modern climbing. His obsession with climbing and exploring the vertical world is legendary.
This book, with photos from his private collection, is one of the most well done books on the beginning of the climbing era that has ever been published.
The photos are crystal clear and his partners accounts of the climbs are vivid and capture the imaginagtion.

This is an absolutely amazing book. I have the first edition, and am tempted to buy the updated version just for a reader. Great insight into one of the most prolific climbers in history especially if you are a Colorado climber. Worth the read!!
