MOUNTAINEERS: Climber shares stories of trip to Argentina

May 12, 2013 

Andy Davis will give a program on climbing in Argentina at Friday’s meeting of the Tacoma Mountaineers.

Davis’ slide show will begin at 7:45 p.m. He will talk about the challenge of climbing the breathtaking terrain as well as the culture of Argentina. Davis took part in wine tours of Mendoza, worked on a farm and reached the windswept summit of Aconcagua, the 22,837.3-foot peak in the Andes.

After graduating from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in music performance, Davis has pursued his passion for climbing and outdoor education. He is a fixture at Edgeworks Climbing gym and has been teaching outdoor education classes at UPS and leading courses for National Outdoor Leadership School.

The evening will begin at 7 with an orientation show on the programs and courses offered by the Tacoma Mountaineers.

The program will be held at The Mountaineers Tacoma Program Center, 2302 N. 30th St., Tacoma. For more information, go to tacomamountaineers.org.
