Steph Davis

Free Climber

This Scorpio wants nothing to do with scorpions. But that might be the only thing that bothers Steph. about the desert. Following a beautiful climb with a wingsuit flight or BASE jump is just one of her passions of late. Steph is animal loving vegan from Moab, Utah and in addition to climbing and flying she also loves trail running, skate skiing, gardening, fixing things, reading, writing, taking photos, cooking and good red wine. The bummer life eh?

What else is there you might be wondering? Oh, she's half Greek, her favorite color is red and she can't imagine not living in the desert.

With a lifestyle likes hers, the desert sure sounds good. She lives in a 1968 doublewide that she has spent nine years refurbishing with lots of tile. Vegan recipes cover her website (which was recently voted the #3 slot in the top 10 climbing sites by Outside Magazine)—almond star cookies and carrot muffins— and she's just wrapping up her second book....look for it soon!
