We are an active group of avid rock climbers, mountaineers, and outdoor adventurers in the northern California and western Nevada Region.  Members of our group come from all walks of life and cover a vast range of skill levels.  We have active duty military, retired military, college students, and everyone else to include their kids.

We tend to host meet-ups as far north as Shasta to as far south as Joshua Tree.  We meet in North and South Tahoe, Bishop, Sonora Pass, Yosemite, Red Rocks in (Las Vegas), and sometimes venture as far as southern Utah for climbing and canyoneering.

We are very casual with an emphasis on fun, learning, camaraderie, and always emphasize keeping safety in mind.  We always take the time to educate each other and share new ideas/techniques. Many of us have extra gear to use during our events.  So if you don't have a rope, no problem, we have extra.

Don't be discouraged when you see our base location as Vacaville.  Our groups has members ranging from Reno NV, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Beale AFB, Davis, Fair Oaks, and so on. Essentially we take our adventures up and down the west coast, but the majority of our climbs are North and South Lake Tahoe.

We would prefer to announce our events on meetup; but lately, many of our group will post events our NSRC facebook page as well.  Some of our NSRC Facebook members are not members of NSRC meetup.  We encourage all of our group to post events on both sites.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
