California Mountaineering Club. The California Mountaineering Club is now ten years old. We have nearly 300 members, mostly from southern California but with a growing number from all regions of the state and many from other states. We climb mostly in the Sierra Nevada, but have scheduled climbs of Mount Rainier, other Cascade peaks, desert peaks, and the Mexican volcanoes.
In 1999, R. J. Secor led a Club outing to explore some of the more obscure approaches to Pico de Orizaba and Iztaccihuatl in Mexico. The Club had several ice climbing outings at June Lake and Lee Vining. It continues its monthly rock climbing outings at Joshua Tree and Tahquitz and held several well-attended training and practice sessions. The Club has a monthly newsletter. Interested mountaineers are invited to visit our web site at www.californiamountaineer.com.
