Welcome to the Sierra Mountaineering Club!
Who We Are
Sierra Mountaineering Club is a 501(c)7 not-for-profit social and recreational organization. Our mission is to be a community where people connect, learn and climb together. We are not a professional or licensed guide service, but a traditional mountaineering club such as the historic Sierra Club.
As a modern mountaineering club built by and for recreational climbers, we offer many free events open to the public. Read More
