40 to 50 foot runout? Maybe 20-25 if you have a #4 Camalot. You have a piece right there in the base of the start, then it narrows once you get up in there.

ccmski is completely correct. This is a Karl's Korner pitch, NOT the third pitch of Classic. Third pitch of Classic goes up the sort of corner/flake east of the belay bush/tree. You go up that, then break right and head up a sort of 12" ramp up the lefthand wall. Step across at the top to gain a crack system headed up across to the far side of the flying buttress to belay.

Having said that, it's completely doable to go up via KK.
The actual Classic pitch is really cool, though. Feb 1, 2016

The flake to the left (not pictured) is 5.7 and could be the alternate route to continue upwards.

EDIT: redid by reaching up and placing a 4" cam and it worked fine. My previous comment about the run out was incorrect. Only had a 3" cam when I first went and this was not enough. Jan 31, 2016

I'd rather protect in the smaller crack like the climber did here, 6s are heavy! Oct 4, 2013
