VISTA, Calif. – April 25, 2008 – prAna, a leading outdoor and active lifestyle apparel manufacturer, today announced that Steph Davis will join their team of sponsored athletes. Recognized as one of the world’s most accomplished female climbers, Davis will ink a 3-year contract with prAna and serve as a brand ambassador to the climbing community.“Steph embodies the adventure, grace and power that live in every prAna product,” says Beaver Theodosakis, president and founder of prAna. “As a prAna athlete, Steph will project our message to a larger audience and lend her climbing expertise to our product development team, helping to continually innovate and energize prAna women’s collection.” A veteran climber with experience all over the map, Davis has made first ascents of major peaks in Pakistan, Patagonia, Kyrgyzstan and Baffin Island—in big wall, solo, free and alpine style.
