Firecat Spire  Sucess!

With Shane R. from the Grand Canyon. I led all the pitches including the direct variation. I advise including it vs the original cut in, but it is chossy as hell. I felt it was safe enough and the final pull over the limestone band was cool and well protected. The 2nd and 3rd pitches make this climb a worthy objective. 3rd pitch will be sandbagged for modern climbers but protected well with a #5 and #6. The 4th pitch involved route finding on bad/soft rock with little substantial pro. The summit rap anchor could use a retrofit.
