I led all the pitches...fun route, but really sustained and the off-widths kicked my ass!

Date Climbed: Apr 13, 2013


4/13/13- climbed kor-ingalls with travis, and it was much different than i imagined. the off-widths were a royal pain and i was constantly challenged. the final pitch, 5.9 chimney variation was spectacular!

11/28/14- north chimney, picked the best day of thanksgiving weekend to climb this route. will never forget the summit views!

Amazing spire with awesome views everywhere! Definitely one of the best towers I have climbed! We were the first ones on the route! Calcite chimneys are a blast..ehh not really. Fun climb though! Brought a #6 and thought it came in handy more then once

With Matthias and Kendra. Left camp at 7 am, started the climb around 8:45. Combined the 2nd and 3rd pitches with 70-meter ropes (just kept going). Topped out at 12:15 and rappelled the N Face in 2 raps (30 minutes) with 70m doubles. Someone fell on Kor-Ingalls requiring rescue that went into the night.

Finally found the courage to get on this thing, armed with extra #2 and #3 Camalots courtesy of my friend Andy. Really fun climbing with cracks the perfect size for my hands. Mary had a much harder time with her #1 Camalot-sized hands. Quick descent down the north face.

very cold and harder than expected, i took the easy out when the group in front offered a t.r. on pitches 2 and 3 I am looking forward to many more climbs on this tower..summited at 3:30 sunset was at 5:30 all in all turned out to be an enjoyable climb, went free but a scary on-site for me.

Superclassic, which I don't have to climb again! I was not fond of the off width on the 3rd pitch. I think that rating 5.9 makes it sound much easier, but I found it more difficult than that. Also sandstone is covered with calcite, which makes it very slippery.
Chimney sections were not so hard. The summit was spectacular with a little shelter (perfect for spending a night up there).
2nd time via north chimney- more enjoyable route.

Did Kor Ingalls with Will on a beautiful autumn day. Pitch 3 was pretty hard but I managed...glad there were some bolts. Sweet summit as well and great views.

First desert tower. Pretty awesome. Not really fun climbing, but a fun climb overall! Seemed fairly run out (we clipped 20 pieces on the entire climb), but the climbing was easy. Rapped the North Face with a single 60m. Didn't make it to the ground and had to down climb around 20ft - don't recommend trying this, bring doubles.

What an incredible route. I'm sure the Kor-Ingells is way worth while, but don't overlook this one, especially if there's a crowd.

fun route, but hardly a classic. Sandbagged, unless I took the wrong crack on the 2nd pitch :)
