In March of 2015, Steve Curtis spent nearly a month climbing in Argentina and Chile. He teamed up with a colorful cast of climbing partners and climbed numerous spires in Frey and long routes in Piedra Parada and Cochamo. Along the way, he discovered a darker side of his ethnicity and witnessed a small slice of the slow Argentine disintegration. Steve always presents an intriguing slice of climbing, culture and history into his presentations. This time will be no different as he will talk about these beautiful and exotic South American locations, the Bariloche Slovenes of Argentina and the American connection in Cochamo.
Steve has been climbing for 40 years around the United States and the world. His favorite spot is still Yosemite and his proudest climb is still The Nose in a day on El Capitain. Currently, Steve is a professor at University of Pacific. Please come and listen to his story.
