Resides

Sigoyer, France

For Stéphanie, climbing is a poetic expression. When she’s on a wall, she loves to live outside of time, in the moment. “One can be more attentive to the minute, to the details,” she says. “I can stand on the infinitely small surrounded by the infinitely big.” When she’s not traveling, Stéphanie loves to write from her basecamp near the base of Ceüse, France.
