The Kor Route on The Saber in RMNPIt had already been a full summer, and it was only July 11 of 1998. I had been hitting the rocks hard since my early June summit on Mount of the Holy Cross, and had done a number of hard climbs at Lumpy Ridge, Eldorado Canyon, Red Rocks (NV). I was in good rock climbing form and looking for good routes; and what could be better than a Layton Kor Route?
Brian was angling again for his notion to visit Vedauvoo for some hard crack climbing; but I had my eye on The Saber, Kor Route: 11 pitches, 5.9. Brian is an easy mark for classic climbs in RMNP.
