Assistant Organizer Jimmy Logan led 13 hard core hikers to Mt. Wilson via Cleaver Crack - Ace of Club. Cleaver Crack is the favorite route amongst 52ers to Mt. Wilson. It was a beautiful day to do Wilson. Jimmy reported that there was a little ice at the top, but nothing that they could not avoid. Anchors and webbing all in great shape.
On January 17, 2015, Assistant Organizer Dinorah (LaExploradora) Arambula led 13 hikers to Holiday Peak, one of five hikes offered by Meetup Hiking Las Vegas today. This is one of the best routes in Red Rock Canyon. The hike follows Bridge Point Slot Traverse and then travels to the ridge. Once on the ridge it’s a wild twist and turn route among the red towers to the peak. It’s awesome. Bring at least 40-feet of webbing or rope to pass up packs. This speeds up the hike and for safety reasons, not because hikers hurt rock!
Congratulations to Alynn Lupold who became the 52 Peak Club's 85th 53er New Years Day on Kraft Mountain with 36 people attending and celebrating the end of her 50 week journey. Alynn was new to Las Vegas when she joined the 52 Peak Club one year ago. During the presentation at Kraft Mountain summit she stated that the 52 Peak Club was a big part of why 2014 was the best year of her life. She thanked organizers and her many friends who helped her along her journey. Everyone came dressed appropriately and looking their best for this momentous occasion, many stories were shared and a little non-alcoholic bubbly was consumed at the top. Video of her presentation.
