Steve Curtis was born and raised in Petaluma, California and after a long time abroad, including 6 years in Germany, he has returned to the area and has not let up on his life long passion for climbing. Curtis is a retired air force prosthodontist with 27 years of service, board certified in 1994 and elected to the American Board of Prosthodontists in 2007. Steve’s notable climbs include the Nose in 16 hours, the Half Dome Regular route in 7 hours, plus long hard speed rope solos in Europe. Steve is a true climbing hardman who’s accomplishments continue to stay under the radar. That is until we get him to do a slideshow for us.
Steve recently travelled to Bolivia to sample the variety of climbing that this intriguing country has to offer. Steve will share his experiences with sport, traditional and alpine first ascents in Bolivia. Plus fun facts about the Bolivian Navy, the Red Poncho People, and attempting to give the Bolivian Minister of Education 40 million dollars.
