Pulled a manky draw off of the second bolt today. Hit me up if you want that death draw. Sep 20, 2015

The biggest crux for me may have been getting the draw into the hanger of the second bolt. Reachy work for midgets there. Absolutely fantastic route! Nov 9, 2014

Absolutely Stellar Route in a commanding position. One of my favorites. Milk that rest to keep the pump down, then run for the top. Oct 28, 2014

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! May 30, 2014

+1 for baguette fueled rants.

Thought it was harder than All Chalk... just by a little bit. May 13, 2013

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...

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. Jun 13, 2012

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. Sep 23, 2009
