Steph Davis was raised as a classical piano student in a traditional, academic family. She ultimately quit music and then law school, making the frightening decision to step off the safe road and follow her passion to become a full-time rock climber. In 25 years of climbing, Steph has applied the principles of discipline and practice she learned as a musician to reach the tops of some of the world's most difficult rock walls and mountains, often climbing solo without a rope or safety equipment. Intrigued by the power of fear and how it affects our ability to succeed and to stay safe, she learned to skydive as a literal way to face her own fears of falling. From skydiving, Steph immersed herself in the pursuit of wingsuit BASE jumping, known as the most advanced and dangerous form of human flight, in order to fly off mountains after climbing up them.
Living and surviving in the mountains and the air, Steph has developed a deep understanding of the need to adapt to one's environment, to embrace failure and to come to terms with fear--skills which are also crucial for survival and success in any walk of life. After the loss of her husband on a wingsuit flight in the Dolomites, Steph saw that resilience is a choice. The decision to keep going forward and to embrace life fully in the face of loss is a simple and yet profound decision that we can all make, no matter what challenges we face. Simply by deciding that we want to go somewhere, whether physically or mentally, we've taken the first step to getting there.
Steph Davis started climbing 25 years ago as a college student in Maryland. She has gone on to climb some of the most difficult walls and mountains in the world, and has made a name for herself through free solo climbing, which is climbing without a rope. Ten years ago, she discovered a passion for skydiving, base jumping and wingsuit flying and she now combines her climbing skills with the ability to fly off mountains in a superhero suit with wings. Steph is considered one of the top climbers and base jumpers in the world.
Steph has written two books, maintains a blog, and runs her own climbing camps in Moab, Utah. She has developed a successful brand that has expanded into social media influencing and marketing.
