walks[n_, k_, h_] = 0;

walks[1, k_, h_] := Boole[0 < k <= h];

walks[n_, k_, h_] /; n >= 2 && k > 0 := walks[n, k, h] = Sum[walks[n - 1, k - x, h], {x, h}] + Sum[walks[n - 1, k + x, h], {x, h}];

(* walks represents the number of positive walks with n steps {-h, -h+1, ... -1, 1, ..., h} that end at altitude k *)
