We had a great day climbing. I climb in the UK and loved the rock face. When we went into the office we were worried it would be raining but it was fine as the climbs are covered by an overhang so even in the pouring rain the rock surface was bone dry. Only thing to consider is a very... More

We had a good day, and thankfully no major incidents, but only because we were lucky! The kit was old, the ropes had far too much stretch, helmets were provided for the climber only (not those underneath that rocks might fall on), and the belaying techniques of the guides left a lot to be desired. The scenery was lovely and... More

Rock climbing and caving was my favorite thing to do in Vang Vieng - the tubing wasn't anything special. I'm so glad I went to Adams for rock climbing because it was well worth it. I learned a few things and we were in the shade climbing limestone.

I participated in the half day rock climbing experience at Adam's School. I had such a great time! They really are able to customize the day for each person (unless you are really advanced maybe?). We had people in our group who had never climbed along with people who wanted to lead climb some of the more difficult routes (6a+... More

I had a really great 2 days rock climbing. I was a total begineer and by the end of the 1st day we were climbing up 26m up on natural rock- not a climbing wall! The second day we were clipping as we went up- not for the feint hearted! I would highly recommend you do this if you in... More

Very nice and competent guys will show you how climbing is done if you are a beginner, and where the good parts are if you are not. Extremely fun 1 day experience.

Tried rock climbing with Adam for the first time and am hooked! Despite being ill, he showed us the principles for belaying and set up the top ropes with his helper. A half day Was just right for me, began to tire towards the end on the mixture of climbs(6, up to 6a I think) Fun puppy as well!!

Half-day costs 180K. It includes everything including a bottle of water. Half-day is also about right for beginners because you'd have tire yourself out by then. It's a really fun experience. It felt very safe. In 4 hours, I was able to make 4 climbs (super exhausted by the fourth, so I couldn't complete it). The guides will assist your... More

I did the half day one and it was my first time rock climbing. I managed to do 4 routes on the beginner level with a group of 5 people. There were many people so we took turn using each routes. Some people in my group did the medium one but it was too tiring for me. If you haven't... More
