For 10 years, Rock-About’s team of weathered guides has ensured a fun adventure for first-time mountaineers, stressing both safety and ecologically kind climbing practices. The 101: Basic Climbing Skills course frees climbers from the doldrums of ground-bound life and bumps them 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, students soak in the beauty of Enchanted Rock State Natural Area with its rolling, rugged hills and enormous granite exfoliation dome. 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.

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.
