My friends and I spent a great weekend with Birddog of Rock-About down in the Hill Country, learning how to climb limestone at Reimers and granite at Enchanted Rock. As a brand-new climber (only previous experience was at local indoor climbing gym), I felt super-comfortable and safe being coached by Birddog. Our safety, enjoyment and training was of the utmost...

My family spent a super afternoon climbing with Adam at the Seismic Wall. My 8-year-old says, "Adam was nice. He let us try things and he gave us tips. He always gave us a challenge but it was never so hard that we couldn't do it. Even the cliffy ones. You're roped in so it's never scary."

We hired Rock About for a private 101 lesson for 5 of us for my son's birthday. We had an age range of 10 to 63 and we all had a great time. Adam provided great customer customer service from the time we booked the trip to post-trip. Chris "Birddog" was an awesome guide, and made everyone feel comfortable. I'm... More

This is a great company to use if you're considering rock climbing for the first time. Our guide, Tyler, was very thorough instructing us the basics of rock climbing and he was super friendly! It was way harder than we anticipated it to be and took us hours to reach the top. Nonetheless, we felt safe and had a fantastic... More

Finally found outdoor climbing through Rock About! (I had only climbed indoors previously.) Adam, our guide, made it very easy to understand everything from the knots to the equipment and technique, and made it fun. I went alone but everyone in our group was so friendly and encouraging to each other and it was very safe.

We had a blast! This was a group of 3 teens on a climb for a birthday present. Adam is a great teacher & I can't wait to go back and climb again!

Had a great time learning how to climb with plenty of time to climb 6 different routes up the rock. Adam was a great guide and made sure everyone was safe and had a good time. I am going to do this again!

After having mountain climbed in Switzerland, I was doubtful I would find another place to enjoy rock climbing as much-until last weekend. My bf and I hired a private guide-Jacob- who was spectacular. The entire team was beyond helpful in setting us up, working with our schedule, and giving us the safest and most incredible climbing experience to date. My... More

My husband and I climbed 35 foot rock faces while the other spouse manned the security rope. It was quite surprising that this was real climbing on our first day. Our guide taught is all we needed to know and watched us carefully. We felt totally safe and edified by our accomplishment. The setting was great, and our guide was... More
