U.S. climber kills himself after avalanche kills girlfriend

According to the NY Daily News, 27-year-old Hayden Kennedy and his girlfriend, 23-year-old, Inge Perkins, were skiing at Imp Peak in Bozeman, Montana, on Saturday.

Mr Kennedy managed to dig himself out after being partially buried, but was unable to find Ms Perkins, who rescuers later discovered buried beneath 3ft (92cm) of snow.

The area had received a foot (0.3m) of snow since October 1, which was on top of about 4ft (1.2m) of dense snow that had fallen over the previous two weeks, according to the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center.

Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center shared the tragic news. In 2012, Michael penned an article for Alpinist titled 'The Sharp End - Letter to my Son' in which he writes about Hayden's loss of friends due to climbing accidents and his awareness of mortality.

"Having lived for 27 years with the great joy and spirit that was Hayden Kennedy, we share the loss of our son and his partner Inge Perkins as the result of an avalanche in the southern Madison Mountains near Bozeman, Montana, on October 7th", Michael Kennedy wrote.

In Memory of Hayden Kennedy ⠀ ⠀ It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our friend, Ambassador and true brother of the BD tribe, Hayden Kennedy. "He chose to end his life", his parents said in a statement.

"This is the painful reality of our sport, and I'm unsure what to make of it. Climbing is either a handsome gift or a curse", he continued.

Only a week before his death, Hayden wrote for the blog Evening Sends about the loss of friends in the wilderness.

"There's no easy way to say this, but half that team is now dead", Kennedy wrote. Justin died in Nepal in 2015.

"I think about Kyle and Justin all the time", he went on.

As tributes flowed to the pair, Kennedy's family says they "sorrowfully" respect his final decision and remembered "an uncensored soul whose accomplishments as a mountaineer were always secondary to his deep friendships and mindfulness".

Both Hayden and his father recognized the internal battle of goal in climbing.

Kennedy was perhaps best known for climbing the Southeast Ridge in Patagonia's Cerro Torre in 2012 and removing numerous bolts placed by controversial Italian climber Cesare Maestri more than 40 years earlier.

Kennedy was working on his EMT certification and Perkins was working on her bachelor's degree in mathematics and education at Montana State University before they passed.

The Denver Post described Kennedy as the son of climbing royalty, and one of the most skilled and passionate climbers of his generation.

Hayden Kennedy and Inge Perkins were the outdoorsy and adventurous couple you love and hate a little because you're the type of girl who would rather eat a meal and watch Netflix than go rock climbing.
