Encinal
Mullholland
Decker
Kanan
Balcom Cyn
Portero

And there are some more. These are the ones I've done a few times and they've never failed to disappoint. You can combine some of these and get some great climbing numbers for a days ride. (think 15,000' of climbing or more)

I have already done all those except for Balcom. Where is the Balcom climb located?
Did Latigo and Decker today.

The most climbing I have done in one day is 8500 ft.

It's off Los Angeles Ave. Google it as it's not hard to find. You can make a loop of it by going up Grimes Cyn.
