First time climbers out there, Adam with Rock About is definitely the way to go. Super friendly guide with years of experience and a true dedication to making sure your experience is phenomenal. We felt comfortable, safe and unrushed. He took extra time to make sure we understood what we were doing and was patient and thorough. Enchanted rock was... More

My four boys (ages 12, 11, 9 and 9) attended the end of July. They had no climbing experience. Every day was a new, beautiful location and they learned so much about pushing themselves and doing hard things. The swimming at the end of each day was a huge bonus. Also both instructors were great at letting the kids try... More

My 14 year old Son attended a Rock Climbing Summer Camp a few weeks ago summer and he had a fantastic time. He enjoyed everything about this camp; the hiking, climbing, rappelling and even the afternoon swimming. Adam did such a great job overseeing the activities. We'll be back next summer.

I took my son to Reimer's Ranch and climbed with Adam of Rock-About. He was a great instructor and guide. He was very knowledgable, kept us safe, and made the day a huge success. Rock-About is professional outfit. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed deep water soloing on the boat climbing tour this past 4th of July weekend on Lake Travis. Adam was super accommodating and even though we were beginners, he was able to find suitable climbs for us to try out! He gave us example routes that we could take up the rocks and gave us... More

This was a last minute trip my boyfriend and I wanted to do before heading back home. We figured we'd get over the boring "beginners course" & next time do the real thing. Well, I was amazed on how fast we got going and climbing! Russell is a great instructor. He definitely showed us all the do's and don'ts and... More

An amazing experience! If you have ever wanted to learn or try rock climbing this is definitely worth it. The guide/instructor was very thorough and always safety conscious. I will definitely go back for more! Just be prepared to work hard and be sore. 😉

My son really enjoyed the week long climbing camp! They climbed at different locations and he learned a lot. Adam was great-flexible and communicative with parents and kept the kids safe while having fun. He even brought his sweet dog, Macy, to camp several days.

My husband and I enjoy hiking and wanted to try climbing. We took Rock-About's basic course through a Groupon a few years back. The class size was large but we still received a lot of encouragement and instructions. From that class we started more Mountaineering style trekking but hadn't really moved beyond the basics of rock climbing. With a more... More
