An introduction to rock climbing for anyone who wants to experience a safe vertical adventure. Not just for beginners, this class embraces all levels and focuses on a fulfilling day of climbing.
Barton Creek Greenbelt
The Barton Creek Greenbelt is the closest location to Austin for climbing at about eight minutes from downtown. Nestled on the banks of the Barton Creek (when there is water), this climbing destination is a great location to learn especially if your time or transportation strapped. Seismic Wall and Gus Fruh wall are favorites for us to teach at, though there are many others to choose from.
Climbing development started in this area in the early 80s and still sees some new climbs go in every year. Adam has bolted quite a few routes here and is very involved as a volunteer to keep all of the hardware safe for all the climbers that use the gear.
Rock-About has taught hundreds of people on these walls and enjoys climbing themselves on a weekly basis for training and a darn good time.
