Route Climbed: North Chimney, Kor-Ingalls Date Climbed: May 2002, April 17, 2005
The calcite on the first pitch has to be one of the coolest features of climbing Castleton. Best pro in the desert, as I see it. Wonderful route, very worthwhile summit and exhilirating rappel. Getting the clip on the bolt that begins the second pitch is scary. A number 8 camalot would really protect the crack well!! We went back in April 2005 for the Kor-Ingalls. What a workout. Very heady on the third pitch, but a great feature. Colby should get away from the classics (twice, no less!!) and try some obscure routes in the desert:-).
Route Climbed: Kor Ingalls Date Climbed: april 20, 2003
coundn't have picked a better day for the climb, the weather was perfect. the route was about what was expected, fun and somewhat demanding at the same time. the calcite deposits do make for some tricky/unconventional moves.
Route Climbed: Kor Ingalls Date Climbed: August 1996
I climbed the Kor-Ingal together with my wife Rike and our Friend Klaus "Alaska" Irmler during our 8-week trip at the western US in 1996. Great landscape, great climb ! The crux is demanding for most european climbers.
