Year of birth: 1973

Moab, Utah

Steph Davis has been climbing for more than 25 years, with numerous achievements in big wall free climbing around the world, and ground-breaking free solo ascents in Yosemite Valley and the Utah desert. Her love for mountain adventure has also led her to BASE jumping and wingsuit flying, which she often combines with climbing.

Considered one of the world’s leading climbers, Steph’s milestones include being the first woman to summit all seven major peaks of the Fitzroy Range in Patagonia and being the second woman to free climb El Cap in a day in Yosemite National Park.

These days, she can mostly be found in the desert of southeastern Utah, where she lives in the small town of Moab with her husband Ian, their cattle dog Cajun, and two very spoiled rescue cats. They also sometimes live in a Sprinter van or their off-the-grid octagonal cabin on 20 acres of land near Indian Creek, Utah.

Steph is the author of “Learning to Fly: A Memoir of Hanging On and Letting Go” and “High Infatuation: A Climber’s Guide to Love and Gravity”.
