Feed Single pole switch from 3-way

I have 12-2 coming into my bath on a 20 amp circuit. I have power coming into a 3-way switch then 12-3 running from the switch to light to switch. Can I tap into the 3-way switch at the end of the run and add a receptacle that will always be on?

Thanks in advance

No, not without replacing the wire from the light to the second switch. The second switch has no neutral wire.

You can't even do with a new cable from the light. You need to go all the way back to the first switch where the power comes in.
