Reunion's third pitch finger crack is one of the Mountain's best pitches. There are many enjoyable ways to get there. I would recommend Said and Done -> Reunion -> Beaver Cleaver OR Cat's Pajama's -> Reunion.
Don't miss this perfect line!!!

Many people climb the 1st pitch of Reunion as the start of the Classic.
The 3rd pitch doesn't get done often- there are two bolts at the belay below this pitch- one is an old 1/4" leeper so beware. The 9+ is full value with sparse pro- a fall before the .75 pocket midway up this pitch will land you on your belayer or the slab below. It is easy to link this pitch with the final one- no rope drag.
For a 4 star linkup- climb the Hotline (first pitch of the Nose, 2nd pitch of Cat's Pajamas, final pitch of Reunion). This is noted as Hiccup Delux on the Cramer topo. Don't know which name is the original- just that the Hotline is what seems to be accepted by the climbing community here.
Said and Done to Reunion is another 4 star linkup with a classic GM 9+ pitch in there!

|I think the line between Said and Done and Cat's Pajamas is a great start as it flows right into Said and Done and as you mentioned is a good set up for the Reunion finger crack. Start up a short corner and mount the detached fang of rock about 25' up; then climb through the small roof and onto quartz knobs joining "Said and Done" at the belay. I think the pitch is in the 5.8 range and protects fairly well although it has been a couple of years since I climbed it. I have no idea what this variation was originally called.|
