Any lover of outdoor activities is going to eventually get the urge to try rock climbing. The good news is that, as a resident of Austin, you have plenty of options at your disposal. From the Barton Creek Greenbelt, located just minutes from downtown, to places in the outskirts that will require the better part of a day, there's something to fit your needs. There are even indoor rock gyms you can try out if you're not ready to face the great outdoors.
I wrote this round up of places to go rock climbing in the Austin area. If you've been considering giving it a try, I highly encourage you to get out there. With views at places such as Enchanted Rock, you're going to love it.
