Rock of Ages Ridge Professional Review and Guide
"An unmaintained trail up an excruciatingly steep ridge, Rock of ages is one of the most challenging and exhilarating hikes in the gorge. The trail gains over 2000 feet in less than 2 miles, requiring strong quads, steady feet, and occasionally a good grip. The features here sound like they're straight out of a Dan Brown novel—you’ll scramble along a ridge high above Saint Peters Dome before gingerly ascending the Devils Backbone. While your heart pounds, enjoy the views of the Columbia usually reserved for swifts."
