Jeff Compas


Jeff has been climbing for 11 years but like most in our sport, he has climbed on everything from the time he was able to pull himself up and mantel over the edge of his crib. Jeff loves to share his passion for climbing with others. Over the years, Jeff and Jenny have taken hundreds of youth and adults on climbing trips and opening a climbing gym in St. George has been a long time goal of theirs. 

CHRIS Horton


Chris' dream of owning a climbing gym started when he first pulled on plastic over 20 years ago. Chris has been climbing for 25+ years including guiding, route development, coaching and training. Since leaving Southern Utah, his goal has been to return to his favorite part of the world permanently. Chris is passionate about helping people achieve their goals, contributing to a fun, inclusive climbing community and environmental stewardship.

Jacquelyn Horton


When Jacquelyn isn't climbing you'll find her 

camping, baking gluten free cookies, SUPing,

or backpacking (usually with a chihuahua in her backpack and Nixon at her side.)

She LOVES the crags in Southern Utah and is passionate about being a positive steward to the environment and local community.

Jacquelyn aspires to bring St. George the facility of it's dreams and is grateful for the opportunities St. George has already provided Contact! 

Jenny compas


Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga are Jenny's specialties. She has been practicing since 2006 and was certified to teach from the amazing Maggie Smith Odette in 2013. She began climbing in 2008 and has taught countless numbers of youth and adults both yoga and climbing. Jenny is excited to run the Yoga Studio at Contact and connect with the community in a state of the art climbing facility.
