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.
