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!

These fellows were accessible by phone, text and email. We area Scout Troop that has used them two times in the last few years. We meet them at Enchanted Rock at 8.30, have some training and safety meetings, fit out and go. They are knowledgeable and not lazy. They accommodate and supply equipment. Friendly folks. We like them!

Not only did Adam and his team set up an amazing day for our family, their focus and uncompromised attention to safety was impressive. My 8 yr old son climbed for the first time. Adam did an amazing job creating a very fun environment, but always put safety first. Wouldn't think of going with another climbing group - Rock About... More
