The MA battling the Fuego arete. Ill-gnar.

Blaze up the bolted arete. Superb! It's to the left of Concrete Jungle.

One of the best bolted routes on granite in the Wasatch.

A #3 and a .4 + a cordelette help make the belay considerably less shitty.
The route is even better than Concrete Jungle. The undercling moves might blow your brains out. 6 stars.

Better than Concrete Jungle? Oh yes, my friends. Beware the long move between bolt 2 and 3, and enjoy the killer footrest below the last bolt. Then curse your fully extended thumb catch in the undercling to stay put as you enjoy passage to the crux arete throw. My fuego is burning.

A comment that can be made about many routes these days: BRUSH YOUR FUCKING TICK MARKS. There are exactly two crimps at the top of Fuego. They do not need to be ticked, they're beyond obvious. Same goes for the 3 larges Xs on the arete. No shit those are not holds, you really need to X the spots you don't want to grab? Especially when said spots are wafer thin pinches in an overhang? Didn't think so...

+1 for baguette fueled rants.

Thought it was harder than All Chalk... just by a little bit.

Crappy approach, and crappy belay, but route is damn fun. :)

My favorite 12a ever. If you decide to work this route, the crux is finding belay partners willing to do the approach...

Enthralling minicruxes between good holds, with a massive rest right below the upper arete. EL FUEGO!
