Fred Beckey, a Northwest mountaineering icon, will speak March 8 at University of Washington-Tacoma’s Philips Hall in an event hosted by the Tacoma Mountaineers.
Tickets ($10) are available through Brown Paper Tickets and Edgeworks Climbing.
The hall holds 460 people and organizers expect it to sell out. Beckey, who recently turned 91, sold out the 310-seat Kilworth Chapel at the University of Puget Sound in 2011.
Beckey, author of several mountaineering books, will sign books after the presentation.
