Sun is Shining

Jan 14, 2015

Sun is Shining from steph davis on Vimeo. Ian and I were mountain flying in Italy, Switzerland and France during the unusually cloudy and rainy summer season of 2014. This 5 week period of travel featured about 70% walking up and down mountains in the clouds and rain and 30% flying down them: and it made for some spectacularly visual (and much appreciated) flights. We also were given the opportunity to fly a heli line above the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, the iconic Dolomite group, and to jump in Chamonix and Switzerland with good friends and talented pilots. For those…


Crazy Beautiful Thing

Jun 23, 2014

Last winter I went climbing at the Cathedral in Saint George for the first time. When I got up to the cliff, I was amazed to see that there were a handful of people up there, and they were all old friends I hadn’t seen in a long time–crushing hard, of course. Mike Call is someone I’d been really hoping to do a project with for some time, and I mentioned to him that I had a video I’d really like to shoot. He immediately got it: that there was something I had to say, within the context of climbing…

The Nuts and Bolts of Wingsuits

Jun 14, 2014

This is a time of major innovation: though wingsuit fliers are a pretty small group of outdoor athletes, we definitely know what we like in our gear, and the gear is getting better and better. Fun new video from my friends at Squirrel! AURA 2014 from squirrel on Vimeo.


Gridbreakers, the Weather Channel

Dec 17, 2013

I can’t think of anything more connected than weather and high places, so hats off to the Weather Channel for putting the pieces together. It was a pleasure shooting with the WC crew in Moab this summer:


prAna Breath Series Video

Dec 4, 2013

I shot this video with the Louder Than 11 team, Rich Crowder and Jon Glassberg, in Moab last summer. Ammon McNeely joined us as the camera test jumper, which helped a lot–base jumping happens pretty quick for shooting, and it’s over fast I remember this as a really fun day for all four of us in Mineral Canyon. I love this edit, and it’s unique in that it really captures what base jumping feels like–at least to me. Great job LT11 !

Salathe Wall Free video

Jun 30, 2013

Freeing El Cap in a day (via Free Rider), and freeing the Salathe Wall were two of my biggest dreams as a climber. It was Heinz Zak who really encouraged me to do both, and he also shot photos on Free Rider with me back in 2003 when I freed it in a day. We were both sad when Heinz’s schedule didn’t allow him to come out from Austria to shoot the Salathe in November of 2005 after I freed it, but it was a great excuse to get up on El Cap with my old friend Jimmy Chin. We…

Forgotten Lines: Video

Mar 18, 2013

I’m excited to announce the release of a new video that I shot with Three Strings Productions and Mario. It’s about climbing the classic Steve Hong route, “Glad to be Trad” in Mineral Canyon. This is the route that is on the front of this month’s issue of Climbing Magazine–it was so beautiful, we went back and took photos with Chris Noble. Forgotten Lines from 3 Strings on Vimeo. Hope you like it!

La Belle France

Nov 26, 2012

Every jump we did in France last September was unforgettable. My top two favorites of the trip were the Chateau des Chevres for its unique formation, and Varan. Varan seems like one of the ultimately aesthetic flights of the area, and I hope to go back and jump this mountain again someday. We were lucky to jump with Roch Malnuit, a super-nice and super-rad second generation base jumper: Mario jumped with his father back when Roch was just a little rugrat! (Now Roch has enfants of his own and is a respected wingsuit pilot in Chamonix.) As a result, we… Roof Jump

Nov 17, 2012

About a year ago, my friends at told me they were planning to paint a giant goat on the roof of their warehouse in Salt Lake City. Since the warehouse is located almost directly under a major landing/takeoff path for the Salt Lake airport, they figured it would be pretty cool for people who happen to be looking out the airplane window to see a giant goat painted on the roof….this is why we love Backcountry. Since I happen to have two base parachutes right now, an idea quickly hatched for Mario and me to jump out of…
