On the Edge of Oblivion climbs the poorly protected arete and face between Esthesia and Slim Pickins. It features sustained, technical, and insecure climbing with ledge fall potential from 45 feet at the crux. There is also ledge fall potential on 5.11 terrain. It was first climbed on toprope in 1992 by Patrick Purcell and Jeff Edwards.  

Start on the slab as for Slim Pickins. Traverse left to the arete, climb it and the face to a good hold. Trend up and right, eventually joining Slim Pickins for eight feet. Head back left to the arete which leads to an overlap (crux). Surmount this and continue to a larger overlap. Climb through the final overlap and up the face to the top.
