“Great learning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We went to Reimers Ranch with Carlos and it was a great time. They take their time to teach and train you with a few laughs as well. Great experience, will go out with them again for another class in the future.

George, We appreciate you taking the time to write us an outstanding review. Carlos will also like the positive feedback and I'm always glad to hear how we are doing. Safety, laughs, and an all around good time is our goal. Can't wait to show you more climbing skills and locations.

Had a great day with Carl guiding us on a hike of Enchanted Rock. We learned about the geology, ecosystems and history of the area.

Debbie,
Thank you for making the effort to give us a review about the interpretive hike with Carl. I know you guys got a first class look at Enchanted Rock. Our Interpretive Hike is the best way to see and Get to know the hill country's greatest landmark. Thanks again and safe travels.

“These Guys Rock!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I'm an experienced climber and very involved with bolting new routes and helping new climbers. These are the guys I always recommend to people who want to try climbing, learn to be better climbers, or learn to safely use trad gear. They are very safety conscious but also focused on making sure everyone has a good time while learning to be safe and able climbers. There are a couple of other groups offering climbing guidance in the Austin area, but having observed all of them in action, I far prefer Rock About. If they weren't around I'd teach people myself rather than refer them to the other groups. I think Rock About does an even better job than I can, and they will tailor the experience to the needs and wants of each individual or group.

Thanks Rona for taking the time to review us. It always makes us feel great when our friends in the community feel positive enough about us to tell others about us. Keep up the hard work you do for the climbing community, we sure appreciate it!

“A must do!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Me and my kids started out with Adams class over a year ago. I had a good friend who wanted to try climbing out. I will always send someone new to Rock-about to learn to climb safely first. Adam and his crew are first class and know their trade to a T. Always a great experience and will be back for more!!

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Also, thanks for informing others of us and bringing your friends to climb with us. We always love to see old friends out at the rock. Look for our Ammo and Attitude episode soon.
