Burgundy Spire from the west - specifically a "bench" at about 6400' below the west base of the Wine Spires. In foreground is (hard to make out) Paisano Pinnacle. The gully terminating at the col (7900') on the left provides standard access to the start of the North Face route (II+, 5.8). The summit was not to be ours on this outing (August 15, 2004).
