Santa Monica Mountains: Updates

Anyone know the current status and road conditions of the SM climbs? Mostly interested in Latigo, Piuma and Stunt, but any information would be appreciated!

Latigo, Stunt, Fernwood and Tuna Cyn are okay.

I haven’t heard about Piuma.

Great. I'm looking to do a 6 hour ride which includes about 4 hours of posing at coffee shops.

The Starbucks at Cross Creek in Malibu is fabulous for posing. You never know what A- list celeb will be walking through the door.

I rode Piuma, Saddle Peak and Fernwood today. All fine. Smells a bit like burnt toast in some areas; but not bad at all!
