Steph Davis: So In Control

Steph Davis has been pushing the limits of climbing for 18 years, cross discipline. She is known for her free ascents of El Capitan, for climbing hard cracks in the Moab desert, for free soloing long and committing routes, and for first ascents in South America, the Karakorum and the Arctic. Steph is also an avid BASE jumper and wingsuit pilot. She has made hundreds of jumps, including combining free soloing with BASE.

Aside from climbing and jumping, Steph loves running, skate skiing, gardening, cooking and writing. She is a prolific blogger and a vocal supporter of veganism, animal welfare and simple living. Steph prefers climbing areas that are good for dogs.

Please check back regularly for additional updates. For videos, photos and more information on Steph, please visit Steph’s blog High Places.


  1. At 55 seconds she makes a nice exit, but the pilot chute is on the left side of the BOC. However at 58 seconds she reaches from and throws her pilot chute on the right side of the BOC.

    What gives?

  2. They probably mirrored one of the shots during video montage (probably the one where the pilot chute is on the left), because it looked better from that angle. That would be my guess.
