Dear RVA Climbers!

Members Only Week @ Peak RVA - 4/19-4/26

I have some very exciting news to report!

I’ll cut to the chase; we will open our Richmond location this Thursday April 19 at 6:00am to our members and their guests! There are more details below, but I know that this was the one piece of information everyone was really interested in hearing.

Now for the details:

It’s been a long road, but the final inspections happened quickly thanks to the City of Richmond. To thank you for your loyalty, support and patience, Peak Experiences RVA’s first week will be dedicated to the community that has made this expansion possible for us. This means that as members, you’ll have the new climbing terrain all to yourselves until April 27th. 

Because the final process with the city moved very quickly, there are some elements that are still underway or waiting for deliveries, but should arrive by the end of the month. We just couldn’t wait to share our walls with you though! Also, during this first week, we will be allowing our members to bring in up to 2 guests per visit, so that you can share your love of climbing with them.

I, and all of the rest of our family at Peak Experiences want to thank you for all of your support and dedication that you have shown us during this process. It has been a delayed progression that at some times was very painful and challenging. None of it would have been possible if it weren’t for you.

PeakRVA Hours:
Monday to Friday • 6am-11pm
Saturday • 10am-10pm
Sunday • 10am-9pm

We’ll see you there!

- Jay Smith • Owner, President

PeakRVA Update


Dear Peak community,

Let me begin by saying thank you to the over 600 people who came out earlier in March to attend our #PeakRVA Hard Hat Happy Hour and tour of our new facility. It was very heartwarming to see so much enthusiasm from you for our new gym. It was also great to get to meet many of you and hear your thoughts and suggestions.

Now, let me speak to the most common question we hear these days, “When will it open?” At this point, all signs are looking like we will be able to open by the end of April! I wish we could give an exact date, but we do have to wait for some final inspections, the scheduling of which are out of our hands.

I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you for your patience, support, and encouragement through this process. Whether it came at one of our events or stopping by my office just to say a kind word, the support of this community continues to amaze me. It has been awe-inspiring to see our members, like Chris Thompson, jumping in to lend their skills to the project as well as the many staff that have put in countless hours doing all that they can to keep things moving forward. This has truly become a community project and one that I am sure you will be as proud of as we are of the people that have made our business such pleasure to have operated for the past 20 years.
