Plenty of guides on hand to help my scouts climb. Challenging and fun for our guys. Helped complete the climbing merit badge and 30ft rappel on the camping merit badge. Excellent company to work with. I highly recommend them.

Our 13-year old had a fantastic week with Rock-About. Adam has picked out great locations for the kids (of varying ability levels) to climb, culminating in a trip out to Enchanted Rock. Our son was challenged with safety first.

Great experience for my 14 year old daughter. I was impressed by how many climbs she could complete given that this was her first time climbing outside. Heat didn't seem to be a problem.More

Right now we meet in the mornings and try to start at 8:15 because of the Texas heat. Once it starts to cool down we can offer an 8:15 and a 1:15pm start time options.
