Rock of Ages has a dense collection of moderate but excellent quality routes.
This crag is positioned very close to and just uphill (north) of Psychedelic Rock.
Rock of Ages is a steep slab of heavily featured, (mostly) bulletproof limestone. The routes tend to be moderate though not easy. The climbing is technical, sustained, and thoughtful with runnels, pockets, pinches, and tiny edges. Several of the climbs have 2nd pitches on amazing chert knobs.
The crag is 160 feet in height. Most of the single pitch routes are around 10 -17 bolts in length. The two pitch climbs typically have about 10 bolts on the first pitch and 7 or 8 bolts on the second pitch.
The excellent "You're So Vain" starts from a small platform on the low point of the left hand side of the crag.
See the trail map.
The developed crags of Mortal Earth are visible from the parking, see the beta picture.
