What You'll Get


Some people are born to run; some are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a Tokay gecko. Unleash your inner lizard with today's Groupon: for $49, you get an all-day introductory rock-climbing adventure from Rock-About (a $100 value) in Dripping Springs. Choose one of the following Sundays:

• June 19
• June 26
• July 3
• July 10
• July 17
• July 24
• July 31
• August 7
• August 14
• August 21
• August 28
• September 4

For over 10 years, Rock-About’s team of weathered guides have ensured a fun adventure for first-time climbers, stressing both safety and ecologically kind climbing practices. The 101: Basic Climbing Skills course frees you from the doldrums of ground-bound life and bumps you up to brand-new heights, teaching the fundamentals of belaying, harnesses, proper commands, and basic cliff-clenching techniques during a day of learn-by-doing instruction. Along the way, you’ll be able to soak in the beauty of Milton Reimers Ranch Park, which nestles over 2,000 acres of sun-dappled greenery in the elbow of a sweeping river bend. Helmets, harnesses, shoes, and ropes are all included in the class. Customers can opt to apply their $100 toward two days of classes ($175) for twice as many chances to catch a glimpse of the park’s super-shy boulder gnome.

About Rock About


When students sign on for a Rock About climbing class, they don't just learn to rope their way up mountainsides and trade banter with goats. The company's certified guides also educate clients about the cultural history and complex geology of the climbing sites. On climbing treks to Reimers Ranch Park, owner Adam Mitchell and his team teach top-roping and belaying techniques while exploring the notion that climbing allows humankind to commune safely with the earth's natural wonders. For those uneasy about vertical exploration, the guides offer non-climbing adventures such as interpretive hikes.
