Steph Davis is an American rock climber, BASE jumper and wingsuit flyer. She has climbed some of the most challenging routes in the world and has set many records as the first woman to free climb the Salathė Wall on El Capitan, the first woman to free solo The Diamond on Longs Peak in Colorado, and the first woman to summit Torre Egger. Steph also blogs about climbing and veganism, sharing plant-based recipes and advice.

Steph became vegan in 2003 after exploring the links between nutrition and performance but animal rights have always been important to her and keep her on the plant-based path.1The Vegan Society. 2016. An interview with Steph Davis, the world’s leading vegan climber.

I’ve been vegan for 10 years now, and there’s nothing in my life that hasn’t become better as a result. I have found that eating a vegan diet gives me optimum physical and mental awareness.

A vegan diet keeps consumer dollars out of the marketplace that supports factory farming, which I believe to be evil.
