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

Kor's climbing resume is the only introduction he needs. In 1961, he made the first ascent of Castleton Tower. In 1962, he was first to climb The Titan. That same year he completed Yellow Wall (V 5.8 A4), the second route on the Diamond of Longs Peak in Colorado, and the Naked Edge (III 5.9 A3) in Eldorado Canyon. Kor was on the 1966 team that pioneered the Harlin Direttissima (ED3/4, 1800m) on the Eiger Nordwand. And in Yosemite, around the corner from Mescalito, he climbed the first ascent of the West Buttress (VI 5.10 A3) and the second ascent of Salathe Wall (VI 5.9 C2). In 1964, he established the popular South Face of Washington Column (V 5.8 C1).
 
Supplementing Kor's story are twenty-three accounts written by other leading climbers describing ascents they did with him. Many of the spectacular full-color photographs are close-ups of Kor in action at high altitude. This work is very sought after and very scarce, especially in this condition.
