Pulling the bulge
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Big right-facing corner left of Sorrow. 20 feet of easy scrambling leads to a sandy ledge where the plaque (maybe) resides. Start on a large loose flake and head into a fun corner. Crux felt like small bulge midway which is red Camalots. There is a helpful thin splitter on the left as you near the finish. Last 10 feet is a little sandy.
Around corner to the right as approach trail meets the cliff. Big corner left of obvious splitter Sorrow.
Golds decreasing to yellow TCUs. Slings for bulge or have your cams walk. Two-chain anchor.
Drop the ropes all the way down from the belay led...
Meredith climbs 'The Trial', 5.10

Super aesthetic line. It is easier than it looks. There is good footholds to the right just were you need them. Bring some smaller gear (orange and yellow mastercam) for the top.

Looks like the anchors were moved higher. From where we belayed, it was a full 120 foot pitch. With the higher anchor location you end with about 15 feet of thin/sandy laybacking- remember to bring orange and yellow mastercams for the top or be prepared to run it out a bit. This climb felt like solid 10+ to me.
