Description

Edge of Space is a brilliant 2-pitch finish to Iconoclast and a sporty alternative to Hyperspace.

P1-5 Follow Iconoclast to Library ledge. (We made it 5 pitches)

P6 -5.10d - 15m - From Library Ledge, look out left for a bolt (If you don't feel good about making it to that first bolt, this route may not be for you;) you can bail onto Outer Space). Make a wild, committing deadpoint/jump off the ledge to a decent hold, and pass three bolts trending left to a semi-hanging belay.

P7 - 5.11b- 55m- The Business. Enjoy jaw-dropping exposure as you desperately slap up the arete. The climbing is incredibly sustained at the 10+/11- level for 50 or 60 ft. Bring some decent edging shoes and WAIT FOR SHADE on this pitch. 9 Bolts and then run it out to the summit!

Iconoclast/Psychopath/Edge of Space is one of the best multipitch routes I've ever done.

Location

The stunning arete feature that this route follows os visible from the trail, in-between Hyperspace and Outerspace.

Protection

Bolts. Gear could be placed on the last pitch after the bolts end, but most climbers capable of leading this crux will find the remainder of the pitch casual.
