Robin Walker began mountaineering in his native Northumberland at the age of 13, and went on to walk and climb throughout the British Isles, Norway, the Dolomites, the Alps, and the USA. In 1981 he moved to Northern Spain, and began to explore the region's mountains, his early experiences culminating in Walks and Climbs in the Picos de Europa (Cicerone, 1989). At the same time, he continued to climb abroad, visiting Kenya, Pakistan, Tadjikistan, Kyrgystan, Bolivia and Peru. Repeated trips to the Cordillera Cantabrica led him to grasp the potential of the range for remote mountain walking, and gave rise to Walking in the Cordillera Cantabrica. Author of numerous articles about mountaineering in Spain, he has been strongly involved in conservation in the region, first as a member of the Colectivo Montanero por la Defensa de los Picos de Europa, then as Environment Officer for the Federacion de Montana del Princpado de Asturias.
