Description 

It's the edge of the pillow, duh. Start near (not on) upward protruding rock that looks very unappealing in the case of a fall. Use the arete to gain the first horizontal and place a good cam. From here you have options... and you have to find those options. Place marginal gear along the way and try not to fall. Finish in cool finger crack at the top to a pleasant mantle finish. A true sportsman wouldn't bail into the chimney of Fat Man's Misery...

Location 

The south facing edge of The Pillow. Use the arete and the obvious horizontals.

Protection 

Standard Rack. Take a big cam for the top.
