Description 

The Remnant is the smaller pinnacle that sits between The Iota and Reed's Pinnacle. The center route links together a few minor features on the outer face of formation. It is a reasonably protected lead, but my guess is this thing sees little action other than the occasional toprope by a party that has climbed The Remnant-Right Side or The Remnant-Left Side.

Start just down and left of the Right Side Route, climb up and right to the top of a large detached block. Here you clip the first bolt and then make a couple moves (5.10+) getting up onto a left-trending ramp. Follow the ramp out onto the center of the face and clip another bolt. Next is the 12a crux - a relatively steep and very blank slab. This section seemed outright impossible to me, but I'm no 5.12 slab climber. Then some good holds lead up to a stance below a seam that diagonals left. One good finger lock and couple marginal sidepull crimps bring you to a final crux (probably 5.11+).


Protection 

4 bolts and some gear for the start. 2 bolt anchor/rap.
