High Infatuation featuring Steph Davis
Join Steph Davis for a multi-media presentation of slides, video, music, stories, and celebrating her new book, High Infatuation: A Climber's Guide to Love and Gravity, and her coming of age story in the climbing world. In High Infatuation, Steph writes on the universal themes of life, love, friendship, personal empowerment, and more, told through a career in climbing. We wait with her in the tent through weeks of rain, wind, snow, and sleet, hoping for the weather to improve in the mountains of Patagonia, then race with her up a towering rock wall of Yosemites El Capitan in a single day. We feel gratitude toward a female climbing partner who cheers her on through an epic ascent and heartache when her relationship with the man she marries, climber Dean Potter, is tested by her need for constant movement and career challenge. More than adventure stories, these pieces reveal Davis soul. They draw us into her struggles with safety, independence, ambition, and compassion. By following the journey of this remarkable woman, we learn what it means to live a truly adventurous life. Show start at 8:00 PM.
