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.
