DETAILSLayton Kor was one of the best rock climbers of his generation, and his list of groundbreaking ascents of technically difficult rock climbs is perhaps unmatched by any American climber. In this book, Kor tells the stories in his own words of these pioneering and suspenseful climbs, from the Naked Edge in Eldorado Canyon to the Salathe Wall on El Capitan to the North Face of the Eiger in the Alps.
Supplementing Kor's narrative are more than twenty accounts written by other leading climbers of the 1960s and 1970s, describing ascents they did with Kor: Royan Robbins, Fred Beckey, Pat Ament, Chris Bonington, Steve Roper, and many more share their perspectives. Written in a straightforward 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.
