Tributes To Layton Kor

Nice collection of tributes to Layton Kor over at Climbing.com, including this one from Steve Komito:

My clearest memories of these adventures include the feeling of sand in my ears and eyes, the sight of Layton’s enormous rock shoes in stirrups over my head, tiny belay stances hung over a void so vast that at times it seemed I must be looking downward into the heavens, and always, the sense that The Force was with me.
