What is there to climb in Texas? Crags of granite and limestone are scattered across this immense state, but the real draw needs no introduction: Hueco Tanks. This area has been called the best bouldering in the country, if not the world. If you like to boulder and haven’t visited, you are missing something truly special.

Texas Section Chair
Adam Mitchell Adam has years of Texas climbing experience and has been a guiding for Rock-About for four years now. He really enjoys passing on his enthusiasm and knowledge about rock climbing in the vertical world. Scouts, new climbers, and experienced alike can gain skills for technique and safety through Adam’s patient coaching.Enchanted Rock is one of his favorite jewels as well as Reimer’s Ranch, as well as our Austin crags at the Austin Greenbelt. To him it is the people that you share a climb with not the climb itself that makes the past-time. He is an American Mountain Guides Association Single Pitch Instructor and a certified Wilderness First Responder. So, rest assured that he is knowledgeable and uses his skills to reduce the risks associated with climbing and the outdoors. Texas has a lot of great climbing.
Are there any dedicated rock junkies interested in becoming an Ambassador? Community Ambassadors are climbers who live and are active in their local climbing communities. Like Section Chairs, they promote the AAC in their area. Local communities consist of climbing locales, population centers with significant numbers of climbers, and special interest groups like ice climbers, women or boulderers. Communities are best served by multiple ambassadors, those with time and energy to coordinate with Section Chairs and rally climbers in the area. Interested? Contact The American Alpine Club for more information.
