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.


Beta Night: New River Gorge - 3/7


Thursday 3/7 from 7-9pm at PeakRVA our head routesetter Eric Mahan will point you in the right direction on where to climb and what routes you'll want to try while you're there!

We'll also be hearing from Shelly Rose of Pure Roots Nutrition on how to fuel our bodies for those long climbing days.

All the while of course, enjoying some brews and 'bucha courtesy of our good friends at Vasen Brewing (21+) and Ninja Kombucha. FREE for members and guests. We can't wait to see you there!

Passages Welcomes A New Class


More than 100 face-to-face interviews with highly motivated folks seeking a promotion or position on the Passages Staff has yielded more than 40 new hires. Thankfully, the vast majority of last year's Staff will be returning too!

Although all Passages Staff participate in 35 hours of pre-season Training as well as CPR / 1st Aid Training, this year we hosted our first New Employee Orientation for our new hires.


45 new Staff and 40 Parents participated in an evening of learning good stuff, doing fun stuff, setting high expectations and getting to know one another.

There was even a grape-juice toast with the Parents to celebrate the beginning of "long-term gainful employment". We also gave thanks for allowing Passages to be a part of the village that produced such amazing young adults.
