 Castleton Tower: Kor-Ingalls   

I did a little write-up of our climb of the classic Kor-Ingalls route up Castleton Tower this past Saturday on our site. Great route and perhaps it may be of some use for those planning their own Kor-Ingalls climb. Here is the link:

You guys make desert tower climbing look easy. Nice Work! If it ain't gonna snow, might as well head to the desert.

Brian C - love all of your trip reports on moderate rock routes on your site. Almost like a mini-guidebook. Nice work.

Helmut - thanks, buddy. Yep, no snow equates to desert climbing for sure.


Awesome, Brandon!     12/05/2012 17:36
Looks like a fun sun's out gun's out day. Run-out off width - it'll be awhile before I can even think about leading that. If I haven't mentioned it before, the new site is pretty nice. Have fun and good luck to you and Kristine!
