Shocked when I read this. Watching him climb Carbondale Shortbus so effortlessly was inspiring. RIP

Awful news. A truly inspiring young climber in so many ways. Evidently hugely capable, accomplished, and ethical to a fault. Came across as a really genuine, motivated guy on the Enormocast and elsewhere. A huge loss for the climbing community. RIP Hayden.

Tearfully sad at reading this. I just cannot imagine the pain he must have been feeling. Nothing in life can be relied on to be fair, however much we'd like to think that it might be.

A truly tragic and heart-breaking account. Such a positive approach to life and great achievements, but an utterly miserable end. RIP

That's so sad. Really enjoyed the stuff I read of his and as the other poster says he came across really well on The Enormocast. Rest in peace.

Desperately sad. I met Hayden in Mexico, Yosemite and Patagonia. Insanely talented, always calm and humble. His approach to climbing was brilliant!! He was respected hugely by all who met him I'm sure.
I'll remember him fondly

In reply to MFB: What awfully sad news. I was reflecting with someone just the other day on how much spray there seems to be nowadays around climbing and he seemed the complete opposite of that. His words about the banality of the summit never rang so true as to what happened here. RIP.

Just such a crappy thing, horrible to read about even though I've never met either of them. Their families must be distraught. Just very very sad. Climbing and mountaineering is so wonderful until it's not.

Ahh this is unbelievable! Only yesterday I was reading a heartfelt piece of writing by him:

Hugely talented and humble to a fault, so sorry for the loss his and his partner's family and friends will be feeling.

Incredibly sad loss both of Hayden and Inge.
By all accounts two really decent human beings.
Deepest sympathy to their families and friends.

Very saddened to read this when I woke up. Such a talent, and as others have said, an honest and refreshing voice in the climbing world. RIP.
