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.

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
