Rock Ice & Mountain Club

Who We Are

The Rock Ice & Mountain Club serves the climbing and outdoor community of the North San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We offer a chance to meet like minded people and get inspired by top notch presentations. Our monthly meetings are free to the general public.

Shows have included accounts of climbing in Nepal, Tibet, Russia, the Sierra Nevada, Europe and Bhutan. The club has organized trips in Sonoma County, the Sierras, the Cascades, as well as other climbing areas including Red Rocks, Joshua Tree, and Smith Rock.

There are Club meetings on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm at the Occidental Rd. Round Table Pizza in Santa Rosa. At each meeting there is a raffle, a multimedia presentation, and an opportunity to mix with other climbers from the area.

The Rock Ice & Mountain Club Is Out Of Hibernation

June 14, 2021

HEY HEY ROCK, ICE AND MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS!!! Like a marmot coming out of a long winter of hibernation, we are re-emerging after almost a year and a half. As Covid-19 restrictions ease, we feel the time is right to re-rack and launch into the next pitch. Yes, our website was down for a while and we have not issued any update emails to our members and followers. We did keep our Instagram account active for a bit, but to tell you the truth, it was kind of nice to take a break from our social media accounts, our monthly meetings and Adopt-A-Crag events. But now we really miss our local climbing and outdoor community that we have spent 27 years building. It really is the members and this great community that makes this club so unique and special. We are sticking with our first Tuesday of each month for our general meetings. For July 6, we are not certain if we will have a presenter for our general meeting or just get together, hang out and re-connect with each other. Stay tuned for more details for July 6 and for upcoming Adopt-A-Crag events and camping/climbing trips.

Steve Curtis – A Month of Climbing in Adrspach and Teplice, Czech Republic

March 20, 2019

Location: Round Table Pizza, 2065 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa Time & Date: Tuesday, April 7, 2019 @ 7:30 PM (Social hour and free beer for members at 6:30) Directions: From Highway 101 at Santa Rosa go west on Highway 12 to Stony Point Road Exit. Go straight from the middle lane at the light onto Occidental Road. The Round Table Pizza is on the right just down the road. Over 100 years ago our sport was birthed in the Elbsandsteingebirge near Dresden, Germany. Shortly afterward, adventurous bands of German climbers discovered sandstone pinnacles over a wide radius, including Teplice in the Czech Republic. Of course, Germans then were too destitute to get proper accommodation and food, acquiring a bad reputation from sleeping in the woods and avoiding entrance fees. On the other hand, they occasionally managed four first tower ascents in a day by routes that are challenging still. Aderspach has a very severe reputation for no fall 5.11 routes from the 1940s. These climbs are hard and runout but tame compared to climbs in the Elb. Steve Curtis continues to travel and search out these fantastic and historic climbing areas in Europe. Steve meets up with his friends for … READ MORE

Calder Davey – A Photographer & Soloist Learning To Adapt

February 27, 2019

Location: Round Table Pizza, 2065 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa Time & Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2019 @ 7:30 PM (Social hour and free beer for members at 6:30) Directions: From Highway 101 at Santa Rosa go west on Highway 12 to Stony Point Road Exit. Go straight from the middle lane at the light onto Occidental Road. The Round Table Pizza is on the right just down the road. Calder Davey has spent the last three years going from living in a small apartment in Sacramento, to a much smaller bed in the back of his truck. His first stop was Yosemite Valley where he was employed by the concessionaire making sandwiches for tourists and the occasional Honnold or Chin. After quickly learning that working in the Valley isn’t very compatible with spending time on the cliffs, he went to the next best place, Bishop, Ca. Here Calder found a home that suited his interests and freedom and felt more of a belonging with a more hush-hush community of climbers and artists. Six months of enjoying the new social climate and splitter weather, he found himself laying in the dirt in the middle of the night at a small crag … READ MORE
