All of the tributes have been great. Even the pictures of his fingers tell a story.

Over the past several years Layton loved climbing in this remote area SW of Kingman, AZ. There were many beautiful rock faces, and pinnacles - most of which, have never been climbed before. Layton amazed me in that even in his 70's, he only wanted to do first ascents. I made a little video on one of our climbs together:

Thanks for sharing. I was out there two years later and he had slowed down a lot by then.

Layton on top of the Rhino's Horn - a small pinnacle he did a first ascent on in NW Arizona.
