52 Peak Club: Our 82nd Hiker to Becomes a 53er

Vincent Ong Dapper became a 53er on Oct. 12, 2014. To become a 53er a hiker must climb all 52 Peaks. There is no time limit on how long hikers have to achieve this goal. The peaks are in Red Rock Canyon, Mt. Charleston Area, and Lake Mead Area. On the hikes are local and no overnight travel is needed.

At the summit of a hiker's final peak there's a celebration and they receive a plaque honoring their accomplishment. Many of these final hikes have a theme. The theme in the video below was Halloween.
