Includes all peaks with at least 1,000 ft prominence in Lake Mead National Recreation Area in southeastern Nevada and northwestern Arizona. Lake Mead peaks are a popular destination during winter, when there is snow and/or ice in Red Rock & Mount Charleston. A great challenge to to work on during those months.

Created by Courtney Purcell and featured in his book "Rambles and Scrambles: A Peakbagging Guide to the Desert Southwest" available here https://www.amazon.com/dp/0692381317. Thanks to peakery member Kevin Humes for help with this challenge.
