My kids spent the week attending a summer camp with this company and they loved it! It was there first climbing experience and each day was a new adventure. At all different ages and levels they found themselves engaged and challenged each day. Plus the opportunity to be outside and exploring Austin was a huge bonus. We will be going... More

Our camps are so exciting for all ages. Your boys were lots of fun to work with and I really think each one of them got something out of our camps though each one was different. We look forward to seeing you all next summer. The camps are already listed and ready to sign up for when you're ready. More

Adam was great, we are going to use him to finish the rest of our training into the sport. He challenged everyone in our group and everyone wants to climb more. He was very patient explaining the safety of the sport and once the climbing begun, push and motivated everyone to climb higher when they thought they couldn't go higher.

Adam the guide was personable, fun, made the instruction easy and informative. It was a several hour class which went by quickly. Rock climbing does require you to be some what physically fit but he helped you with hand placements and technique. Words can't express how much fun this was and what a wonderful way to spend the morning. I... More

This was my husband, myself, and a 16 year old exchange student’s first time to rock climb, and we signed up for the 101 Basic Climbing Skills. Their web site was easy to use and book our trip, and they provided the climbing shoes, helmets, and harnesses. We climbed at Reimer’s Ranch and Russell our instructor was terrific. Russell was...
