3rd Pitch- 180’- 5.10a/ From the top of the second pitch belay this pitch is quite a bit longer than Handren has it marked up in his guide. However, the first 50’ or so is mostly just fifth class ground until you reach the base of the hand crack. Run up the beautiful hand crack placing gear at will for less than 100’ to a small ledge. Make a stem move or two to traverse up and left from this ledge onto large positive face holds that angle up and left to a small stance ledge and fixed belay below the arching crux pitch of Cloud Tower.
