I would definately recommend this to anybody interested in a little adventure. The guide was very informative and helped everybody of all skill levels feel safe and confident in their abilities. We will go back and do it again soon.

Thanks,
Roman, Joe and Daniela

My wife, two teenage sons and I spent the day climbing with Rock About last Saturday and we had a blast! I am sure we were both the oldest (I’m 54) and youngest (13 & 15) in the climbing group that day. It was our first time and, to be honest, both boys were a little uninspired about it but that changed fast once we met Birddog. He handled that Teenage attitude with ease and had their attention on safety from the get go. I felt comfortable they were not just in good hands, but the best hands.

Even though it was the beginner course, it was challenging enough to keep those teenage bullet proof mentalities very inspired. The course was ready to go when we got there so no time was wasted waiting for set up. We went right into safety and techniques (Emphases was on safety AND having fun). And in no time Adam and Birddog had us climbing and belaying each other like Pros.

Thanks Guys for a great experience and the education about Enchanted Rock! Both boys want to do it again and of course so do we!

Klabbe57,

Thanks for taking the time to review us. I'm glad you and your family had a great time learning to climb! Safety is obviously paramount, but having fun is a close second. Climbing a course that is both challenging but doable is the key to keeping teens engaged. I'll make sure Birddog gets your compliments, he'll be thrilled to hear them. I appreciate your recommendation and look forward to climbing with you again.

All the best,
Adam

The Guides - Adam and Bird-dog and very informative, supportive and guided our group through all the steps to make our rock-climbing experience one of the best we had. They have a great emphasis on safety and make this adventure safe and enjoyable.
Loved every minute of it and would definitely come back for more climbing.

Booked because of Trip Advisor reviews and now know why Rock-About is 5 stars and people rave about Adam. My wife and I were in Austin for our 22nd anniversary. She thought I booked it and I thought she booked it. Well, since neither of us had, I contacted Adam late on April 7th and he still worked us in on Easter even though he hadn't planned on working. He is such a professional, knows his craft perfectly and is so friendly and down to earth it was fun just to meet him. This was our first experience. It was challenging and hard work but very rewarding and a lot of fun. I am 64 and my wife 55 but he worked with us so patiently and we learned a lot and felt like we accomplished a lot. Cannot say enough good things about the experience and also about Adam. Give it a try.

jcboogers,

Thanks for reviewing us. Taking you and your wife out climbing was my pleasure. I'm glad the two of you had a great time! It's hard to beat the feeling of accomplishment that comes when you finally get to the top after a difficult climb. I appreciate all your compliments and your recommendation. I'd love to take you climbing again if you're ever in the area.

All the best,
Adam
