    Layton Kor Dies
    Layton Kor, one of America’s greatest and most revered climbers of all time, has died. Kor rose to prominence in the late 1950s and early 1960 by establishing a string of first ascents that included Castleton, The Titan and Standing Rock in Canyonlands, the Naked Edge in Eldorado, the South Face of Washington Column in Yosemite, the Yellow Wall on the Diamond, and Proboscis in The Yukon.
    TNB: Chris Sharma and The Art of Jeep Maintenance

    Marmot Amphibian Glove
    Anyone who’s suffered through the “screaming barfies” knows how hard it is to find a good mixed-climbing glove.
