Sam on the airy traverse across the face on flakes. It is best if the leader can run it out and set the next piece about 20 feet above the traverse in order to keep the rope more above the follower. I had linked this part of the pitch with Pitch 4, so I set the belay about 20 feet above the traverse, using a #3 and #4 for the belay. The SuperTopo guide actually shows a belay here, making the route 6 pitches.
