The Big Walks Club website was set up to record my mountain adventures and was originally
inspired by the Ken Wilson's wonderful Big Walks and Classic Climbs books. The site
will hopefully also inspire and help others enjoy their own mountain experiences.
The site provides information about expeditions being planned, as well as reports
and photographs from previous trips.
Trip Reports are posted on the website as they happen. Quick links to some of the
most popular pages on the site are given below :
Welcome to the Big Walks Club Website
Video films have been made of most of trips. These would help greatly in the planning
stage if you are thinking of repeating any expeditions and are produced very professionally.
If you would like a DVD please go to Trip Reports for details of how to get hold
A section giving Useful Links is provided for information on weather and routes.
Please leave a message on the contact page if you want any more information about
the routes we have completed or if you would like to join me in the Mountains. It's
great to hear from like minded souls.
I completed the Muros at the end of 2015 and have not really done much in Scotland
since then. Starting in May - June 2022 I going to start my round of the Corbetts
as well as repeating some of my longer Munro expeditions where the weather was pretty
rotten the first time around. Plans for the HRP traverse in the Pyrenees are still
being considered but I feel that this expedition will have to wait a few years when
I will retire.
Planning for the JMT has now been put on hold due to the Coronavirus outbreak. An
application for a permit has been put into the Yosemite system but as yet there has
only been denial emails so hikers are still applying for permits.
The site is dedicated to the memory of my Dad, John Galsworthy, Group Scout Leader
of the 11th Warrington Troop and loving father, who gave me the skills to climb all
the mountains in my life
