Looking down from the belay before the money pitch...

Description 

1st pitch: Climb any of the lower routes (e.g. Daly Splitter, Donini crack, or Flight of the Condors) to the anchor at the top of Flight of the Condors.
2nd pitch: From the FOC anchor on the big ledge, traverse up and right for ~10m, climb up a short corner for ~5m and step right to a belay on nice stance (two-bolt anchor).
3rd pitch: This pitch climbs a beautiful finger crack in the corner directly above the belay to another two bolt anchor. This is the money pitch. The route stops here. 70m rope required to rappel off. There is potential to push the route all the way to the top (1-2 more pitches).

Location 

Up and right of Flight of the Condors. 10m to the right of Fingers of Fate

Protection 

Wide variety of cams up to #2. Nuts.
