Canadian Jon Walsh has been putting up new climbs in Canada and abroad for the better part of the last decade. His insatiable appetite for exploring steep mountains with either skis, rock shoes, or crampons, has helped him accumulate dozens of first ascents and wild adventures in many corners of the globe – the steeper and more technical, the better.

Followed by fi’lms in competition.
