Detailed Product Description
MULTIPLE COPIES AVAILABLE

2007, 1st edition. 190 pp, photos. Throughout her life, Steph Davis has chosen to take risks, to trust her impulses, to make decisions based on what feels right inside--and never look back. Studying to be a concert pianist, she quit music the day she was introduced to rock climbing. Later, she abandoned the respectability of university life and pursuit of a law degree to become a 'dirtbag climber,' living out of her grandmother's hand-me-down Oldsmobile sedan. Today, by dint of courage and perseverance --and pushing aside the sometimes patronizing attitudes of male colleagues--she is not only renowned for her climbing prowess but makes a living at it.
 
SIGNED by Steph Davis.

In High Infatuation, we wait with Davis in the tent through weeks of rain, wind, snow, and sleet, hoping for the weather to improve in the mountains of Patagonia. We race with her up a towering rock wall of Yosemite's El Capitan in a single day, and then spend weeks inching our way up a huge granite monolith in the Arctic. We feel gratitude toward a female climbing partner who cheers her on through an epic ascent.

More than adventure stories, these pieces reveal Davis' soul. They draw us into her struggles with safety, independence, ambition, and compassion. At times, competing drives cause inner conflict, as in her need for constant movement and constant challenge vs. personal relationships. She never forgets that the joys of adventure must be balanced against its costs. New paperback.

About the Author
STEPH DAVIS is on record with first ascents in Pakistan, Patagonia, Baffin Island, and Kyrgyzstan. Her writing has appeared in Climbing and Rock & Ice, among other publications. Married to climber Dean Potter, she makes her home in Moab, Utah. She was the first U.S. woman to summit 11,073-foot Fitzroy in Patagonia -- a success realized after spending five seasons, a total of ten months, in Patagonia.

American climber Steph Davis is one of the few women to have free climbed El Cap when in 2005 she climbed the Salathe Wall (VI 5.13b/c). She is also the first woman to climb all seven named summits in the Fitzroy massif. In 2007 she soloed Pervertical Sanctuary (IV 5.10c) on the Diamond, Longs Peak (14,255') in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. Her crack climbing is legend and recently she has taken up BASE jumping.
