Sorcerer's Apprentice is a minor variation to the Sorcerer that adds ~150 feet of high quality climbing, some of which is shared with COTAM and Labor of Lust.

P1: (5.8+, 55m) Climb Sorcerer for 55m to a good stance just below the left-leaning corner on P2. The anchor consists of nuts and a 0.5 C4, so you can dump your rack in this long pitch.

P2/3: (5.10-, 70m) Climb the left-leaning corner system off the belay to a thin section where the corner ends. Thin slab moves (crux) lead to a rest and good gear. Climb left on runout jugs to the bolt on Labor for Lust. Then climb straight through the overhead roof crack (5.9) and finish up moderate rock to the summit.

With a 70m rope, you can make the summit in one long pitch!


Sorcerer's Apprentice splits left from Sorcerer at 60m.
