We’re going to miss you Colby!

After being a rock for Climb Base5 (and formerly Ciffhanger) over the past ten years, Colby Appleby, our general manager, will be shifting gears and is leaving Climb Base5. He’s been a staple in and around the gym and magically made everything work, from the day-to-day operations and administration of the gym, coming up with new ideas for our climbing programs, to just being a down-to-earth and welcoming person for climbers, gym visitors and our community.

My years at Climb Base5 have been some of the best of my life. I will miss my job and the incredible people I have had the pleasure of working with throughout the years.

We wish him all the best. He’ll be missed!

Some of Colby’s favorite memories at Climb Base5…

Working with people from other gyms to put on the November Sessions, being part of the positive energy that is unique at climbing comps, and getting to see the kids from the previous years improve and get stronger.

Representing Climb Base5 at community events like Canada Day, Easter Seals Drop Zone, and Healthy Family Living Expo. It was a great way to share what is great about Climb Base5 to a new audience of future climbers.

Working with a diverse staff, in a friendly and laid back environment.
