I have taken two courses with Rock-About this past year. First, a Lead Climbing course in the Spring followed by a Trad Climbing course in the Fall. I had a little gym climbing experience under my belt but was really wanting to get outdoors. Rock-About provided me with the tools I needed to get outdoors and climb safely. Whether you... More

I called Rock About early in the morning and Adam (the owner) was able to accommodate us for a guided climb on the Greenbelt in Austin that same day - I wouldn't imply that would be the norm, but it worked out great. What you need to understand is that Adam "bolted" several of the routes there and that translates... More

This was the 3rd climbing trip with this company. It was a great experience. The instructor Adam was wonderful great instructions and teaching style. We learned about crack climbing which was a new technique for us. We will be using them again in the future hopefully to learn how to lead climb!!

The Scouts learned figure 8 follow through knots, used all day and tied like a 1000 times. Olivia, Rachael, and Adam were AWESOME Climbing Guides! Various Scouts overcame challenging routes, perseverance, and fears of heights. The scouts experienced the thrill of reaching the top carabiner of a route. This was a great first time experience for our troop! Scouts belaying... More

Our camps are so exciting for all ages. Your boys were lots of fun to work with and I really think each one of them got something out of our camps though each one was different. We look forward to seeing you all next summer. The camps are already listed and ready to sign up for when you're ready. More

Adam was great, we are going to use him to finish the rest of our training into the sport. He challenged everyone in our group and everyone wants to climb more. He was very patient explaining the safety of the sport and once the climbing begun, push and motivated everyone to climb higher when they thought they couldn't go higher.
