A poorly named but richly rewarding challenge, the Sierra Club designed the Hundred Peaks Challenge "to encourage [its] members to explore and enjoy the mountains of Southern California and... to stimulate interest in climbing these ranges." The number of peaks has increased over the years with a current total of 280 peaks over 5,000 ft, a lifetime of challenge. More info at http://angeles.sierraclub.org/hps/
