Description

Firecat Spire is an old school climb located in the heart of many towers in the area. It is located just northeast of the Screaming Basengi tower. A prominent limestone ledge leads out from left to right on the north face. This is the start to the North Face route.

Getting There

Kole's Approach Description:
Park at Marg's Draw Trailhead. Follow the trail east until it intersects with the real Marg's Draw trail at a 4-way intersection with a sign. Go right for 100' along the main trail, then turn left on a small hiker's trail. Follow this as it crosses a few small washes until it reaches a very large area of slick rock. Continue walking straight until you pick the trail back up on the south side of the slickrock. Follow this trail into the big wash (Marg's Draw). Go left up the main wash for about 1/2 mile until it becomes brush-choked. At this point another wash comes in from the left, and you can see the striking splitter of Fisher King. Follow this side wash north until Screaming Besingi and Firecat come into view on the right. Scramble up the gully on the north side of Firecat to start the route. GPS: 34,51.379 N 111,44.222 W
