Following an injury to his hand while rock climbing, Walker began researching potential cures to his ligament damage and cartilage damage. This  sparked interest in medical research has now lead to the creation of his own academic blog.

This is the climbing of a smaller formation or walls without the use of ropes or a harness. In 2016 he competed in the Bouldering National Competition.
