Brandon Napieralski – To Maine and Back Again: A Road Trippin’ Tale

Location: Epicenter, 3125 Coffey Lane, Santa Rosa

Time & Date: Tuesday, December 7, 2021 @ 7:30 PM (Social hour and free beer for members at 6:30)

We are re-scheduled Brandon’s presentation after having to cancel in September.

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. Come listen to Brandon share their adventure and insights on climbing across America and the best routes to take to get there. Brandon and Jacque moved to Santa Rosa from western New York in 2018 where they quickly discovered the Rock Ice & Mountain Club and have been active members ever since.

Climbing and Camping Trip to Bass Lake, Oakhurst, CA – November 5-7, 2021

We have booked a group campsite at Bass Lake near Oakhurst, CA for Friday night through Sunday, November 5 – 8 with the option to add a third night on Sunday. Bass Lake provides lots of recreation opportunities including camping, boating, paddleboarding, hiking, mountain biking and, of course rock climbing. There are many crags within an hour of Bass Lake including Fresno Dome, Shuteye Ridge and Tollhouse and Yosemite Valley is only an hour and a half away. A November camping and climbing trip presents some weather challenges, but we are overdue for a successful trip without rain, fire or a pandemic.

If you are interested in attending, please email Darren at [email protected] to secure your spot. We have availability for 30 people.

October General Meeting – Cancelled

The October general meeting on October 5 has been cancelled. Unfortunately, we are getting off to a rough re-start after not holding meetings for over a year and a half because of Covid-19. Last month we had to cancel at the last minute when we found out that Round Table Pizza was not open for indoor dining. Additional changes and scheduling issues have also arisen in the last couple of weeks and we feel it is best to just cancel the October general meeting.

But, hold tight. We do plan to hold a November general meeting and will have some exciting news to share very soon. Stay tuned and thank you for your understanding.

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. Go straight from the middle lane at the light onto Occidental Road. The Round Table Pizza is on the right just down the road.

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.

Rock Ice & Mountain Club Re-boot Social Gathering

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 hand out for their store in Point Richmond.

If you can, please show up around 6:30pm as we don’t plan to go our full time slot until 9:00pm. See you there.

The Rock Ice & Mountain Club Is Out Of Hibernation

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.
