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.

Dierdre Wolownick - Four Peaks and a Dream

Posted on - April 27th, 2016

Location: Round Table Pizza, 2065 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa

Time & Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2016 @ 7:30 PM (Social hours 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.

In 2009, Dierdre went to the climbing gym with her son, Alex Honnold, to see what he did all the time — and she’s been climbing ever since. In 2013, she was awarded a grant by the American Alpine Club to go to the northeast to work on her leading skills. Her birthday in September falls in peak Yosemite season, so each year, she arranges a special climb with Alex, something to take her completely out of her comfort zone and into the world of high elevation and exciting adventure.

A writer all her life, Dierdre has written essays about climbing in 7 states and 3 countries, for magazines in the US,… READ MORE

The Rock Ice & Mountain Club will host an informative meeting and open discussion on the latest California State Park's Fee Collection Project for the Sonoma Coast and Salt Point State Parks. We have been following this Fee Proposal for several months when the climbing community learned about a proposed fee kiosk on Goat Rock Road which would have eliminated essential parking and access to Sunset Rocks. In response to this Fee Proposal, the Rock Ice & Mountain Club, with support from the American Alpine Club, Access Fund, Bay Area Climber's Coalition, Vertex Climbing Center and the B-Rad Foundation,… READ MORE

! ACCESS ALERT – SONOMA COAST STATE PARK FEE PROPOSAL – KEEP ACCESS TO SUNSET ROCKS !

Posted on - March 9th, 2016

Local and regional climbers have a real and immediate access threat to Sunset Rocks at Goat Rock on the Sonoma Coast. It came to the attention of the climbing community very recently that the most recent revision to the Sonoma Coast State Park Fee Proposal includes the construction of a fee collection entrance station (kiosk) right at the location where we park and access Sunset Rocks. This proposed kiosk location eliminates essential parking and access to Sonoma County's premiere climbing location for recreational climbers and for permitted groups that take young and new climbers out to experience this amazing climbing location and teach climbing and outdoor stewardship. Beyond this specific access threat for climbers, the proposed fee program, if approved by the California Coastal Commission, will install pay stations (kiosks) at Bodega Head, Goat Rock and Willow Creek and self pay stations (iron rangers) at Stump Beach, Shell Beach and Freezeout Creek.
