I wanted to leave a review for Adam and our guide Russel(Aka the big Lebowski?). Adam provided great communication ahead of our trip and worked with me to attempt to accommodate a last minute change in our booking. Although we ended up sticking with our original plan things couldn’t have worked out any better. I’ve been a long time climber and requested a hybrid lead climbing guide and beginners trip due to the vast difference in experience between my friend and myself. Russel who has been climbing and guiding for over 20 years provided us with a masterfully laid out day involving basic instruction, observing us climbing and giving both of us expert guidance on lead climbing and belaying. I’ve had guides in Yosemite and this was one of the most productive and fun experiences I have had anywhere. I would recommend rock-about any time and plan to come back for personal guided rock climbing in the future as well as recommend my friends family participate as well.

Experience exceeded expectations! Adam, Russ, and Benji were very friendly, professional, and thorough in their instruction and commitment to safety. We took our church youth group of twelve, ages 12 to 16, most of them completely new to the sport and half way through the activity they were belaying each other safely and climbing the rock walls @ Mineral wells. Everyone had a great time, not a scrape, everyone felt completely safe and comfortable. Great confidence building experience for anyone, specially youth.

We went as a troop with BSA to Enchanted Rock for rock climbing to earn requirements for the appropriate merit badges. We had over 20 Scouts participating which would normally be challenging for any organization to keep focused and energized but these guys did it! I cannot say enough great things about the class act trainers that trained our boys on how to climb. Anyone can just do their job but these guys went above and beyond. They not only taught us how to climb but they encouraged and challenged us in such a perfect way that created more momentum to finish all requirements needed. I highly recommend this team and would trust my sons life with them any day on the ropes. Fantastic job!

Rock-About exceeded all my expectations. Nick taught everyone from my 4 year old son to my 30-something year old husband and met us all on the level we needed. My 12 and 14 year olds particularly enjoyed the day climbing at Mineral Wells, and made it up most of the climbs by the end of the day. It was one of the best family days we've spent in a long time. I couldn't recommend Rock-About and Nick any more highly without climbing on top of something to shout it!

My husband and I took the sport climbing class through Rock-About in 2019, and just this month we took the trad class. Our sport class was taught by Russell, and the trad class was taught by Nick. Both instructors were extremely thorough. I walked away from the class with confidence that I was ready to apply the skills I learned. Classes through Rock-About are more expensive than taking a class at a gym, but the breadth of information taught is 100% worth the price. I feel far more prepared to take on climbing adventures after working with Russell and Nick, and I'll be returning to Rock-About for classes in the future.

Communication was great - Adam was extremely responsive via email to help guide in the right direction on choosing a class and location. Our guide Russell was outstanding - professional, personable, and attentive. We felt extremely safe and had a blast. My daughter and I had done some indoor climbing and this was our first outdoor experience. Russell tailored everything to our experience level and provided us with some good challenges that we could work through successfully. Can't rate our experience positive enough and we are already booked again - 6 out of 5 stars!

Rock -About is a well run climbing company. We had the great fortune of having Adam , the owner , be our guide. He is extremely patient and very well versed with climbing procedures. We had a mixed group some of us very beginner and some very advanced. They provide equipment for those that do not have it. Great fun and would recommend to anyone who is local and interested in learning or for those that have experience and want to do something locally.

A group of 4 of us, half being first-timers, spent the day at Enchanted Rock. Russell was our instructor and he did a great job explaining everything and laying the foundation for good climbing habits. The climbs were exciting and the park was beautiful. We all very much enjoyed our day and look forward to climbing again with Rock About.

Took a group of 4 people total to go rock climb, 3 of us had never climbed outdoors before. Our instructor Russell was amazingly knowledgeable, thorough, attentive, and made everyone feel safe. I would absolutely recommend booking, 100% worth it.

My guide, Chris, was right on time at the entrance of the park, and we walke for about 15 minutes to where the climbing was to take place. It was my first outdoor climbing experience. Chris is very safety conscious, and he explained in detail the does and don't of every procedure. And I climbed, all in all for 6.5 hours. We stopped because I had to go back to my hotel, but I did about 10 routes, discovered crack climbing, and had lots of fun. It was a wonderful experience.
