We wanted to plan fun things to do near Austin on super short notice and I'm super glad I picked Rock-About for our climbing adventure. I am an experienced rock climber and my partner was completely new to outdoor climbing, but our instructor found us spots that were a blast for both of us. He was extremely professional and safe...

We had an amazing experience today with Adam, Rachel, and Bird Dog. We had a group of 16 Boy Scouts, parents and siblings who were mainly beginners and Rock About took us through a fantastic day of climbing and rappelling at Enchanted Rock.

This was the highlight of our business retreat! People who had never tried it succeeded and those with extreme height fears succeeded at their own level as well. They were great at encouraging everyone just the right amount and making sure all we're included!

I have taken two courses with Rock-About this past year. First, a Lead Climbing course in the Spring followed by a Trad Climbing course in the Fall. I had a little gym climbing experience under my belt but was really wanting to get outdoors. Rock-About provided me with the tools I needed to get outdoors and climb safely. Whether you... More

I called Rock About early in the morning and Adam (the owner) was able to accommodate us for a guided climb on the Greenbelt in Austin that same day - I wouldn't imply that would be the norm, but it worked out great. What you need to understand is that Adam "bolted" several of the routes there and that translates... More

I have to admit it isn't everyday that I can just jump right in and meet folks for climbing same day, but sometimes it works out and I'm happy it did this time for you guys.

This was the 3rd climbing trip with this company. It was a great experience. The instructor Adam was wonderful great instructions and teaching style. We learned about crack climbing which was a new technique for us. We will be using them again in the future hopefully to learn how to lead climb!!

Thanks for seeing all the places we have to offer and getting to know the different personalities we have to offer. And for being patient with my day mixup with you all. I hope we can teach you the skills to be able to climb on your own in the future. You two are ready for that for sure. More

The Scouts learned figure 8 follow through knots, used all day and tied like a 1000 times. Olivia, Rachael, and Adam were AWESOME Climbing Guides! Various Scouts overcame challenging routes, perseverance, and fears of heights. The scouts experienced the thrill of reaching the top carabiner of a route. This was a great first time experience for our troop! Scouts belaying... More
