July Happy Hour

Happy hour time 7/21/2015!
Bring photos and regale us, over a beer, with stories of your latest caving adventures or ask about how to get into caving in California and meet some fun people. If you have photos to share of a recent caving trip, bring a URL, USB drive or a laptop and we’ll show them on the big screen.
Drop by anytime after 7pm. There will be beer, wine and veggie-barley soup.
Street parking in the Mission is free after 6pm, and the house is less than a block from the 24th Mission BART station.

July SFBC Vertical Practice

The vertical practice in July will move to Ron’s place.

The address is:
18 Woodwardia Ave
Felton, CA

and our phone is:


Instructions on how to get here are at:


Please note that we don’t have much parking at the house; people should use the alternate parking shown on the map. If somebody does come to the house, be aware that Google Maps gets things right but Apple apparently does not, directing you to a bridge that closed a couple of years ago.

We will have a BBQ, so people should bring something for the grill and something to share.

Join Us on Cave Trips

It’s super easy to sign up for a trip. Come say hello at a meeting or send us an email if you’re right on time. Share with us your interest and caving experience. Could be none. Could be tons. We want to get to know you.

Check the calendar for an upcoming trip and wait for the trip leader to send you more info. That’s it. You’ll be caving in no time.
