Best trip you can go on for out of the country rock climbing. Adam has a good rapport with the locals and camp grounds in the area. From the camp grounds the first climb is about 5-10 minutes walk. Climbing is well bolted with good anchors. The rock is Limestone with so many features. Adam knows just about every route... More

This was not my first time climbing with Adam...I am a repeat climber. I loved the climb so much the first time that I came back for more. Fun and exciting and definitely worth every penny. I highly recommend this adventure, you will not be disappointed. I will be going back again for more climbing excitement soon.

His passion for climbing is only outweighed by his passion for climbing safety for his groups and the ones that are not his.

Spent two full days climbing with Rock-About at Enchanted Rock this past November. Even with the looming threat of rains we still got in two great days of climbing. Enchanted Rock is a beautiful landscape with fantastic granite. This is a best in class outfit. Along with being very professional, Adam is very knowledgeable, patient, and a great companion to...

I've been climbing for years, I know all the guide services in town, and there's nobody that does as good a job as Rock About. They're efficient, fun, knowledgable, and very importantly, SAFE. Hiring a guide service like rock about is a great way to be introduced to climbing.

Excellent instruction, with terrific guides. Adam and his group of instructors go above and beyond to ensure the safety of those climbing. The classes are fun and I would highly recommend anyone interested in climbing (novice or experienced) to take a class with Rock-About. I've taken several classes with them and truly enjoyed each one!

I am a highpointer (trying to reach the tallest peak in each state). I contacted Rock-about to learn the skills necessary to accomplish the peaks that require technical climbing skills. In addition to being receptive to my goals, Adam was incredibly patient with me. I would highly recommend this company for any rock climbing expedition!
