Rated "Excellent" on TripAdvisor

"Doesn't matter if you have no experience or are used to climbing 5.12's, this outfit can teach everyone something. Extremely knowledgeable, safe and really makes the experience about you - not watching a clock. Coming back for sure!"

– Scott M., Dallas, TX

"This experience with Rock-About made our mom-son trip extra special! It allowed my 12 y.o. son and I to share the outdoors and push each other to a new adventure. Russ and Chris were outstanding and made us all feel safe and empowered. We climbed most of the day and it was amazing!!!"

– Pier T., Houston, TX

"Excellent training, Rock About's staff kept 10 to 14 year old boys interested and focused. As boys were climbing and repelling staff was alert, attentive, and encouraging. Staff were friendly the whole time even with 32 people climbing for 6 hours."
