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.

Nov. 29 – Dec. 1: Thanksgiving Weekend Climbing and Camping Trip – Patrick’s Point State Park, Humboldt County

November 5, 2019

The Rock Ice & Mountain Club has finally organized a climbing and camping trip!!! We have booked several campsites at Patrick Point State Park on the beautiful north coast in Humboldt County. Patrick Point is central to many climbing and bouldering spots on the coast and inland. There is even some great climbing on the coast in Patrick Point State Park that is walking distance from the campground. We have booked three campsites for two nights – Friday, November 29 and Saturday, November 30. There are currently many available campsites for Sunday night, December 1 that we can reserve if there is interest in staying a third night. We will have availability for 24 people. It will be a crap shoot on the weather. Sometimes it can be perfect weather in November or it can be rain. We will take our chances. If it does rain, there is great hiking in the redwoods and Arcata has a climbing gym. Check out Mountain Project for information on many of the climbing areas: To sign up, go to the Contact page at and send Darren Wiemeyer a message. Please include Patrick’s Point Trip in the message. photos: Evan Wisheropp
