It was great! Adam was very knowledgeable about the sport. Took instructions seriously when they needed to be, but was a sarcastic person so made the experience better.

As a scoutmaster, taking a group of boys climbing was a challenge. RockAbout's staff was courteous, knowledgeable and extremely proficient in teaching all our boys and adults how to overcome their fears and be a successful climber.

Thank you Rock-About staff for a wonderful day. This was a End of the Year field trip for my class and you guys were awesome.

We had good communication throughout the process of booking our trip. We weren't told where to meet once we entered the park, but it wasn't a big deal. We found him quickly. Adam was a very nice guy, laid back.

Hey Candace, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sorry for the trouble finding us at first. I hate the phone communication isn't better there so I can help more with that. Or maybe I can make my email more clear for directions. I'm glad y'all had a good time. I had a great time with y'all.... More

I took the intro to Trad class with Adam and it was great. Full of pertinent information about anchor building and placement of trad gear but by the end of the day I had lead my first trad route! I'm thinking I'll take a crack climbing course from rock about too!

I gave my girlfriend a lead course for her birthday so the two of us could learn how to go climb on our own safely. Russell was our guide and he was an awesome instructor.

Several years ago, I took a rock climbing class with another instructor at Enchanted Rock. There were 4 of us and only one person climbed all the way up. I left that encounter feeling defeated and disappointed, especially since I was the one that had organized the shindig. Jump forward a few years and a couple of kids . .... More
