Climbing Guide

Walker was born and raised in the Wood River Valley, where he’s been exploring the mountains from a young age. SMG’s own Ryan Jung introduced Walker to the world of outdoor climbing on the Slabs behind Redfish when he was 13 years old. After graduating from high school in the spring of 2012, he began picking up intern work from Sawtooth Mountain Guides. Walker became a full-fledged licensed guide in 2014. After taking a few years to seek education in travel, work, and mountain pursuits, Walker is now studying furniture design at the Rhode Island School of Design.
