Between The Iota and Reed's Pinnacle is a 100' Exfoliation slab, this is The Remnant.
Jamming and liebacking lead up the left side.
Pro to 3".

It is very good and hard climb. Reid book did not give it any stars, but it should. Started with unique body position - almost horizontal - to transition from tight flare to body size chimney. Than fist size roof - the crux. How hard- depends from your fist size.
And than thin crack to the anchors.
Can be well protected with single rack from small cam to #6

Would be worth 3 stars if the route & base weren't so dirty. Very physical route, which can either be mostly liebacked or also incorporate some OW technique (e.g. I cammed my right leg in to assist with the lower liebacking after turning the first roof).
Unless perhaps you can start the route as squeeze chimney, you have to climb a ways on pretty burly terrain before you could even get a #6 4CU in, though a crash pad might be helpful for the start.
