Description

This is one of the smaller formations in the area but hosts a great mixed climb that finishes with a nice finger to hand crack.

Getting There

From Stage Road (the main fire trail) The Rock of Ages shares its approach with Pulpit and Pagoda Rock. On the left of the trail is a wooden post for Nature Walk 8. Past that on the right is a post for Nature Walk 11, then a bench, then Nature Walk 10. Shortly after that, on the left, is the straight, narrow, well-worn dirt trail you want (goes uphill and to the right). Immediately after the trail entrance is a small dried creek. If you hit the post for Nature Walk 9 you've gone too far. If you hit the green gate you've gone even farther.

After a short hike up the trail and over some rocks you'll see Pulpit on the left. It's the first area and it's hard to miss with its one bolted route right next to the approach.
