I would think it'd do nicely there, she'll have shaded feet and a sunny head :)
You're right about giving the Pyracantha some summer interest.

As you may know, all bar 1 of mine are next to shrubs and as long as you're doing what you're doing re planting about 18" away from the shrub and planting at an angle towards it, it should be fine.

Many of my mature shrubs are now getting clematis to climb over them. As Louise suggested, plant your climber about 18" away from its host and it should be fine
