Come and hear the amazing adventure in Citizen Diplomacy of six Americans led by Fred Ptucha, who joined with members of Iran’s Mountaineering Federation to summit Damavand, an 18,605 foot volcano that is sacred to the Persian people. At age 75, Fred was the oldest American to ever summit Damavand. After leaving the mountain they visited five Iranian cities and had meetings with hundreds of ordinary Iranian citizens. Most of them had never met an American. The people were amazingly warm and friendly and said how much they loved America even though they did not like our government. With Trump, Bolton and Pompeo threating war on Iran, this is an opportunity to see the faces of the people that the United States warmongers want to kill. It is better to light … READ MORE

Steve Curtis – A Month of Climbing in Adrspach and Teplice, Czech Republic

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 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

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
