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. She makes her home in Moab, Utah. She was the first U.S. woman to summit 11,073-foot Fitz Roy Peak in Patagonia-a success realized after spending five seasons, a total of ten months, in Patagonia. Follow along on all of her adventures and even ask her questions about her life as a climber on her website, High Infatuation.

Reviews

"Davis uses a conversational voice with just enough climbing lingo to tie together a lifetime of lessons learned in the almighty name of Going Higher. In fact, she's put together a hell of an infatuating story. It's four cups sweat and adrenaline adventure tales, two cups fresh personal essay, a tablespoon of poetry and a handful of international and cultural travel writing."--Francisco Tharp "Mountain Gazette "
"The ultimate focus of the book is not climbing but the conflict Davis feels between the radical solitude of her chosen obsession and being a member of society."--San Luis Obispo Tribune
"Interesting, well written, humble and sincere"--Climb Nashville
"High Infatuation: A Climbers Guide to Love and Gravity is a collection of soul-searching essays by a female climber who has experienced enough adventure to last several 'normal' lifetimes."--The Bulletin (Bend, OR)
"[Davis's] writings reveal a woman given to impulses, seeking outlandish challenges and daring to be different."--Klamath Falls Herald&News
"Steph Davis's stories and anecdotes are truly inspiring; her writing, thoughtful and poignant. She has led an uncompromising life. And her heartfelt insight into the struggles and decisions that have informed that life is a gift to any reader."--Jimmy Chin, Photographer and climber
"High Infatuation chronicles her stripped-down, up-the-wall life... [and] the book is about more than gear and climbing routes."--The Modesto Bee
"Davis's clean, fresh prose and honest and open examination of herself make High Infatuation an enjoyable, quick read, and the book has some gems, like 'Falling, ' ... in which she explores the death of two sisters in Freemont Canyon. This book will be a nice addition to the annals of mountaineering literature."--Rock and Ice Magazine
