My mom and I went on our first ever rock climbing excursion in Dripping Springs, TX with Adam as our guide. We were both a little nervous about the level of difficulty, but Adam quickly put us at ease. He was very laid back and his dog was super cute. We started with a short hike and then learned the safety and climbing basics. We did a few climbs and because we had extra time Adam was nice enough to set up another for us. We really enjoyed our time and we recommend Rock-About to everyone.

Thank MegannTaylor

Thanks for your time with us and for your time in writing this review. It can be daunting at first and you and your mom did excellent. I hope we can always keep folks happy just like this. Come climbing again if you can.

recently took the lead climb course with Adam. Very instructional, challenging and fun! Instructor ensures you know all the safety techniques involved in lead climbing as well as how to properly conduct the climbs. I left feeling confident in my ability to begin sport climbing on my own.

We really do want our clients to eventually start climbing on their own. It is so much more of an experience to get there on your own. However, learning how to do that safely is a different matter. I hope we have taught all our lead climbing classes well enough for people to feel like this. Thanks for your review and let us know when your ready for a trad course.

Thanks for your time in writing this review. You were one of the last folks to go out with my lil man Jackson (the boxer guide dog). He made lots of people feel at home on the rocks and taught Macy how to be a great guide dog as well. Glad you had a great time with us and Macy would love to see you all again.

This was throughly enjoying experience. The climb at enchanted rock was amazing, and our tour guide Bird Dogg was great. Loved how he gave us guidance but still hands off just enough that we were able to push ourselves and gain the most out of climb. I'd love to do the rock climb again with Rock-About Climbing

Thanks for your review and sharing your experience with us at Enchanted Rock. Climing can be a personal journey so we like to give you just enough help to figure it out on your own. But of course giving you all the safety information which is also of the utmost importance. Come again if you can.
