Famous climber, Hayden Kennedy, kills himself after girlfriend dies in avalanche

Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center

Officials say Perkins and Hayden Kennedy went skiing and approached a steep, narrow gully on Imp Peak in the southern Madison Range on Saturday, triggering a slide that fully buried Perkins and partially buried Kennedy.

Kennedy never called 911 to report the slide, and instead left a note with "incredibly clear directions for where to find her", Doug Chabot, of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center, told Outside Magazine.

A story remembering the lives of Kennedy and Perkins cited Michael Kennedy's Facebook post that his son simply couldn't withstand the "unbearable loss" of Perkins, his "partner in life".

Nine Gallatin County Search and Rescue volunteers and two avalanche dogs were deployed to the area.

Firing in Sweden's Trelleborg leaves at least four wounded
Police launched a major operation following the dramatic shooting in Trelleborg, Sweden , at about 10.30pm (local time).

The Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center recovered Perkin's body on Saturday.

A renowned U.S. mountain climber has killed himself one day after his girlfriend was fatally buried by an avalanche in the USA state of Montana. "The true, lasting meaning, we like to say, is found in the friendships and partnerships that we build while pursuing our climbing goals", he wrote.

On the blog Evening Sends, Hayden had written at the end of September this terrifying sentence is prescient: "The friends and climbing partners are ephemeral". There's no easy way to say this, but half that team is now dead.

Hayden Kennedy, 27, took his own life on Sunday. "And Kyle, along with his partner, Scott Adamson, vanished while climbing on a remote peak in north Pakistan a year later". This is the painful reality of our sport... rock climbing is both a gift and a curse. He chose to end his life. "Their absence from this world is felt by so many who are left in a wake of confusion, anger, and frustration. Myself and his mother Julie sorrowfully respect his decision", he added.

Kennedy, who grew up in Carbondale, Colorado, had been working on his EMT certification while Perkins completed her bachelor's degree in mathematics and education at Montana State University.

Kennedy was 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. His father, Michael Kennedy, was an accomplished mountaineer in own right, establishing countless first ascents and served as editor-in-chief at Climbing Magazine for 30 years.

"An awareness of mortality prompts us to focus on what's important: developing a strong community of family and friends; engaging in work that stretches us intellectually, creatively and emotionally; understanding that no matter how often we've erred or compromised in the past, we must always try to reach again for the highest ideals", he wrote.

Just a week before his death, Hayden wrote an article about the perils of climbing mountains.
