Jim Walton

I'm a freelance Civil Engineer. Working pays for climbing. I've managed to walk, climb and be lost on 6 of the 7 continents. Africa still to go.

Really into my Climbing Literature.

Best Climbing Experience
Leading 3 unknowns to the top of an Antarctic summit (one of whom had never worn crampons, a fact he kept from me until reaching the summit!).
Or seeing the storm break and the Solvay hut to be only 50m below after a truely horrendous forced bivi on the ridge in Feb with only a duvet and a orange bag to keep out the winter.
