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 AND BE PREPARED TO WEAR A MASK. When Brandon And Jacque agreed to attend a wedding outside of Buffalo, New York, the first logistical question was “How are we going to get there?”. Logically, they decided to quit their jobs and drive across the county as it would allow them to stop at climbing spots and hot springs along the way.

Steve Curtis – Climb Brazil

Location: Round Table Pizza, 2065 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa Time & Date: Tuesday, August 3, 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.

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.

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
