Cheers To You Jay Smith

Dear Peak Climbing Community,

jay smith.png

This is an exciting time for me. After twenty years of growth and accomplishment, I have decided it is time for me to move on from my professional roles with Peak. Put simply, after so long in one industry I am eager to try something new. The past few years of planning, building and opening our second facility have been a time of tremendous challenges and I could not be more proud of what has been accomplished. The vital support of all of our members and customers has allowed Peak to grow beyond all expectations. Seeing such a vibrant community filled with caring, supportive and engaged members has and will continue to fill me with pride and happiness. Thank you for all of your personal support and encouragement throughout the years.

Many of you that know me know that I am not one for many words. Nothing that I could write could adequately express my feelings as I look back on the last 20 years at Peak. I will forever be grateful for every experience and interaction with each of you. The best part for me is knowing that the family I have known for 20 years will still be a part of my life.

Jay
