Gambling in the Winds with Jesse Huey

Wild Ideas Worth Living

Sports & Recreation

Jesse Huey is a professional climber who spends much of his time clambering up icy mountains, frozen waterfalls and other alpine landscapes. Climbing allows Jesse to push his own limits as well as build strong friendships with fellow climbers. 

The tight-knit climbing community was the inspiration for a climbing route he completed in the Wyoming wilderness to honor his late friend Hayden Kennedy. In this episode, Jesse shares how he became addicted to climbing and how friendship and loss have been a part of his life and career. 

Please note that the conversation in this episode covers suicide and survivors’ guilt. If you or someone you know is struggling, know that there’s always someone there to listen. The number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-TALK (8255).
