Morning Keynote: Embracing Change: Managing Risk & Fear

Friday, May 27, 2016 | 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM | Grand Ballroom

Steph Davis

One of just a few people in the world, and the only woman, combining free solo climbing with base jumping, Steph Davis’ resume of climbing achievements spans 25 years. One of the few climbers who practice the high-risk style of free solo climbing – using no ropes or protective gear – she was the first woman to free climb the Salathe Wall on El Capitan, and the second woman to free climb El Cap in under 24 hours.

From an unusual start as a classically trained pianist with a Master’s degree in literature, Davis has written two memoirs, High Infatuation and Learning to Fly, and she curates a blog at with a focus on community, health and wellness, simple living and travel.

She owns and operates Climb2Fly Productions in Moab, Utah, a climbing and base jumping stunt company.
