You're both right. We linked the first two pitches, so this was actually our third pitch; however, it's shown as the 4th pitch in the Handren guide.
I loved the exposure and position on this route . . . and the fact that it's extremely steep for a 5.8! You could spit on the beginning of the first pitch from the belay atop the 4th (or 3rd for those who are actually counting :P ).
