The 2nd Annual Las Vegas Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge is a self-paced hiking and trail running challenge up six iconic Vegas-area mountains, including 11,918′ Mount Charleston.

You can climb them in order as you build your strength and endurance, or mix it up. The choice is yours. Your registration will help support Big City Mountaineers, so you'll be doing good for others with each peak you climb.
