Want to ride Rockwork Orange, Korova Milk Bar and Wizard Burial Ground next week, and wonder if anyone would suggest the preferred climbing route to get up to the Flank? Trailforks shows Scotia Creek/Darwins and Whip Me Snip Me options.

I usually park on the side of the road in Stonebridge just a bit down from the Darwin's climb. I would say Darwin's is your best bet for accessing those trails.

So you shuttle? Or ride back up to the truck?

Not possible to shuttle there, gotta ride back!

I go from village down lorimer Rd, valley trail to rainbow Park, across Alta Lake Rd, hot dog alley to Scotia creek climb, up stone bridge

or park at rainbow Park since you'll finish near there instead of a climb back to vehicle.

HDA is okay, scotia creek really sucks….if you don't want a steep hot gravel road grind, just go ride the paved road up stonebridge, also hot and exposed, but at least it's not a steep puncher
