Great experience for 13 year old boy

My son had a great time. They visited several places, so it kept the experience fresh each day, The owner is very flexible and accommodating. Well worth the money!

I've climed with BD a few times and I've been more than pleased every time. I took my young son too. He refused to use a rope. But with BD by his side talking him thru it he did it! Where else do you get a guide free climb right next to your son?

Thank you for your praise in this review. Birddog is definitely a trip. I guess that's what 25 years of guiding will teach you. Hope to see you again in the future. More

Adam did a lead climbing class for three of us who had some toproping time but had never led. He went through all of the mechanics with us while on the ground, then let us try it while on a toprope, and finally let us practice doing it for real. The step-by-step approach made things very clear, with a big... More

This was by far one of our all time favorite day-camp experiences. Adam is a true climbing professional who is passionate about sharing his love for the sport and teaching REAL skills to kids who want to learn. The kids got to experience parts of Austin and the Hill Country (Enchanted Rock!) in ways they'd never done before in small... More

We had an amazing experience hiking, climbing and hanging with the rock about gang this past V-Day. It was my fiancés first time climbing and by the end of the day she was belaying and climbing like a champ. We had a great time and would go again!

Adam and Bird Dog were great teachers and entertaining on our rock climbing trip to Enchanted Rock but kept safety first and foremost. The boys had a great experience and learned a great deal about team work and personal responsibility. I would recommend Rock-About to any organization or small group of climbers looking for a safe, great time

Four of us (2 adults and 2 children), all females, went rock climbing on 06/25/015. Adam, our guide and the owner, was excellent. He was patient, fun, and easy going. We had a blast.

LA thank you so much for your review. You and your girls are great fun. I appreciate a great mom who was willing to give something a shot because she wanted her kids to try it.

Like the Grand Canyon, this place is obviously a holy place. You can feel the spirits of many generations while walking up the fairly easy climb. I've been several times and look forward to going back again soon.

My 9 year-old son and I were in Austin for a few days and were looking for outdoor activities that "wouldn't be boring" for him. We contacted Adam of Rock-About with 1 days notice and were fortunate that he had the next day open. He took us to the seismic wall just a few minutes out of town. My son... More
