Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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.
