It’s been a year and a day since we said goodbye to BD Ambassador Hayden Kennedy and his partner Inge Perkins. But hardly a day goes by without us remembering the incredible ascents, humble attitude and infectious stoke that Hayden shared with climbers around the world.

To honor HK, fellow BD Ambassador Josh Wharton established a new route in Eldorado Canyon—a line he knows Hayden would have loved.

In this video, John Dickey captures tales from HK’s friends, who share their favorite memories of Hayden, while documenting Wharton’s first ascent.
