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.

COVID 19 NOTICE: GIVEN THE RISE OF LOCAL COVID 19 CASES, EVEN AMONG VACCINATED PEOPLE, AND BECAUSE WE ARE INSIDE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO EACHOTHER, WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT ALL ATTENDEES BE FULLY VACCINATED. This June, given all the negative news, Steve Curtis decided upon an unlikely climbing destination. A trip to Brazil. The advantages of going during this time were extremely low prices and a complete lack of foreign tourism in Rio de Janeiro. The disadvantage was a few cancelled flights. Steve had to spend a few more days in a South American version of paradise. Flavio Daflon, owner of Companhia Da Escalar, published a great book “50 vias classicas no Brazil”. Most of Steve’s trip was climbing 12 of these routes.

Location: Round Table Pizza, 2065 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa Time & Date: Tuesday, July 6, 2021 @ 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. We are really excited to re-boot the Rock Ice & Mountain Club after almost a year and a half of not being able to do monthly meetings or events. As we ease back into our monthly general meetings and start planning for future climbing and camping trips and Adopt-A-Crag events, we thought the best way to start off with a general meeting would be to just have a casual and relaxed social gathering. We will provide free drinks and may comp a pizza or two to show our appreciation to, not only our members, but our local climbing and outdoor adventure community. This will be a way to re-connect with friends, hang out and enjoy each other’s company. We will have a bunch of Mountain Hardware/Columbia Friends and Family passes to … READ MORE

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.
