EARLY MORNING LADYFACE MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE
I’m staying local and dry (no water attacks from the WWW) this Wednesday by taking on Ladyface Mountain’s seductive northeast ridgeline and then dropping down her vexing eastern ridgeline. Both ridges are steep at times, requiring the use of hands to negotiate. She’s a siren that has been beckoning me lately to take her on again, since it’s been awhile. So, join me if you are a local Conejo and Las Vergenes valley member, or not, looking for a sweet local steep challenge; awesome views of our community; and the challenge that a 3 mile trek on the Lady offers.
