Reading a Solaris tape created by ufsdump

Any hints on how to get the files off of a SDLT tape created by Solaris

I can access the tape handily:
$ mt -f /dev/st0 status 3
tape capacity    : 34571200 KB          remaining        : 34571200 KB
current block    :        0             write protected  :      yes
datcompression   :      off

write filemarks  : yes                  write setmarks   :  no
write long filem.:  no                  write marks immed: yes
write shrt filem.:  no                  set EOT warn size:  no

and I did the "mt -f /dev/st0 setblk 0" 

but what command do I use to pull the data onto disk?
