Can I remove this?

This crazy house I live in has more un-needed pipe runs than I've ever seen in a house. I don't think any of the previous owners believed in planning.

To the question.. I have a 2" cast iron pipe running from the where sewer enters the basement and goes to a union in the wall above the stool, I ought to take pics of how they ran it you guys would laugh. I'm assuming it's used for venting but I don't know why. The 3 branch runs have proper venting and we have no problems. Can I remove and cap this line off? I'm wanting to rerun hvac ducts and it's right in the way.
