Beginner Outdoor Rock Climbing

As we embark on this climbing adventure, safety is at the forefront of our minds. In beginner climbing, we teach basic climbing techniques to ensure that you are equipped to handle whatever challenges the mountain presents. But you won’t do it alone – this day is all about teamwork, trust, and communication with your fellow climbers.

We’ll help each other navigate the terrain, exchange tips and tricks, and rely on each other for support. But it’s not just about the climb – we’re also here to have a great time and appreciate the beauty of our surroundings.

The lakes of central Texas offer some amazing climbing opportunities, and at Rock-About Climbing Adventures we are proud to offer the only guided boat climbing tour in America. These tours are actually great for everything from beginner to advanced climbers, as you can climb as high as you like, then jump back into the water.

In your first session, you can expect to complete anywhere from six to eight climbs. But it’s not just about the number of climbs you do. We want to make sure you have enough time to fully immerse yourself in this thrilling sport, which is why we recommend setting aside at least four to five hours for your climbing day (maybe even longer if you’re headed to Enchanted Rock). Safety is our top priority, so you’ll learn the basics before getting on the rock and giving it your all. Get ready to feel the rush of adrenaline as you climb higher and push yourself to the limit!
