I vote with Steve  --

"When going into an existing condition, I've cut the top plate at 48"
centers and laid in a new member full height.  This is designed for the
trib load with a point load at the existing plate height (or +14' in
your case) "

We also often use this method.  The new member is typically a 4x.

Good luck.
