Summary

Steph Davis takes risks, trusts her impulses, makes decisions based on what feels right and never looks back. Soon after she was introduced to rock climbing, she abandoned the respectability of university life and a potential career as a concert pianist to become a "dirtbag climber," living out of her grandmother's hand- me-down Oldsmobile sedan with Fletcher, her loyal Blue heeler mix. Today, Davis is one of the most accomplished female climbers in the world, having made first ascents in Pakistan, Patagonia, Baffin Island, and Kyrgyzstan. She was also the first woman to free climb the huge Salathe wall on El Capitan in Yosemite and the first woman to summit Torre Egger in Patagonia. In High Infatuation, Davis writes on universal themes of life, love, friendship, and personal empowerment, as expressed through a career in climbing.
