Are you looking for a trip that will provide you with great exercise, as well as some fresh air and wonderful views? Then outdoor rock climbing is for you. And on this full day trip, we would like to guide you on a rock climbing adventure at Penitentiary Hollow in the Mineral Wells State Park.

Penitentiary Hollow is only 1.5 hours away from the wonderful northern Texan city of Dallas. So, if you’re planning a trip to Dallas, this climbing excursion is a great addition to your visit. Furthermore, for people who love the outdoors, the Mineral Wells State Park is full of fantastic views and sites that you can enjoy before, during and after this climbing trip.

The type of climbing that will be focused on during this full day trip is top climbing. Top climbing involves participants being strapped into harnesses and joined to a rope that runs from a belayer at the start of the climbing route to an anchor at the top of the rock. Top climbing is both easy and extremely safe. Thus making it perfect for newer outdoor rock climbers.

While you don’t require much experience to enjoy this trip, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
