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.

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 2, 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

Darren Wiemeyer – Backpackin’ and Peak Baggin’ in the Wind River Range

February 4, 2019

Location: Round Table Pizza, 2065 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa Time & Date: Tuesday, February 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. Darren Wiemeyer and his wife, Natalie, embark on a 10 day backpack and climbing trip into the heart of the Wind River Range in Wyoming. After years of exploring and enjoying the High Sierra, the desire to backpack and climb in another spectacular mountain range was the big goal for 2017. Unfortunately, they were shut down by a high percentage thunderstorm forecast. So they returned in August of 2018, forecasts be damned. They devised an ambitious plan to pack as many meals as possible into their already stuffed packs in order to complete a big backpacking loop and tag summits along the way. They mostly got lucky with the weather and climbed the ridge tower on Overhanging Tower, Bollinger Peak, Midsummer Dome and the classic south buttress of Pingora. Some highlights … READ MORE
