                               We are selective on who can join us, because safety is our #1 priority.

What is the 52 Peak Challenge?

The 52 Peak Challenge is a club within this Meetup group that motivates you to hike/scramble to the best 52 peaks around Las Vegas. Each time you complete a hike to a peak, you earn a playing card. The goal is to earn all 52 playing cards. If you want to be a better hiker, join the 52 Peak Club.
