One Challenge — Five Badges to Earn

2020 SoCal Six-Pack of Peaks Finishers Badges

2020 marks the sixth year for our Southern California Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge, and for the first time, there are a total of 18 peaks to choose from. Along with those peaks come new badges. Here's a run-down of all five of the finisher badges and how you can earn them.

2020 SoCal Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge Finisher

The Finishers Badge

Earn this by completing any six peaks out of the 18 available peaks. Everyone who completes any six peaks gets this, even if the peaks they log also qualify them for one of the special badges below. Because of this, our Finishers List gives you a complete view of all finishers, regardless of which six peaks they hiked.

2020 SoCal Original Six FinisherThe “Original Six”

Complete the original Six-Pack of Peaks: Mount Wilson, Cucamonga Peak, Mount Baldy (aka Mt San Antonio), San Bernardino Peak, Mount San Jacinto, and San Gorgonio. You can hike them from any trail or route, but make sure it's a challenge for you. Because, karma. 😉
