Description 

The Sorcerer's Apprentice is the left pillar of two pillars in the immediate vicinity. The right pillar is the Sorcerer. This is an excellent area on hot days because it stays mostly in the shade. Honestly, the pillars are not incredibly beautiful or striking. They do, however, provide some quality, stiff routes that are an excellent representation of what to expect in the desert. In other words, expect some good rock, and rest assured, there is also some bad rock. The routes on these pillars are nice and spicy.


Getting There 

From Moab heading back toward I-70: Take a right on 128 (River Rd). At mile marker 1, look to the cliff on the right and one will see the two pillars. There is a parking area immediately on the left. From the parking area the approach trail is easy to see. Approach time is about 15 minutes.

Sorcerer's Apprentice Right 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b  UT : Moab Area : ... : The Sorcerer's Apprentice
This route is located on the right side of the Sorcerer's Apprentice. It is very obvious. The route offers three pitches of sustained, exciting climbing. The rock on the route resembles varnish wingate, but actually has some seriously crumbly rock on every pitch. Pitches two and three are probably a little sandbagged, but hey, you be the judge. PITCH 1: There are two ways to start pitch one. You can either go straight up the obvious finger crack or climb the flake to the right. The rock ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
