Steep, thin, slab climbing on very small features. The first bolt is easy to get to, but the crux comes quickly as you scan the face for something that allows further progress.

Unlike Pink Canoe to the left, there is no good crack to help you out. If things become desperate you can resort to using the flake to the right, but this takes you off route and makes it difficult to get back to the bolts.


4 bolts to hangers-and-rings anchors.


Fat Hippos is the right bolted line on the right slab of the Black Rose area. The route shares the anchors with Pink Canoe.

This climb became more and more fun for me as I found the minuscule holds for the middle section (between bolt 2 and 3). Despite the fact that the route is short, it has three distinct, fun sections: moderate slab climbing, hard crux, difficult and distinct flake finger lock things with bad feet. I really enjoyed the route. It packs a lot into its 4 bolts. Jun 8, 2013

Tough slab climbing with a great crux from the second to third bolt. Will really wear down your fingers and those sharp edges on your shoes. You may want to clip the first bolt from the right side and then start the climb. 11a climbing to the first bolt with the possibility of a big fall to the deck. Jun 1, 2012
I admit it was mine...Bring your small tips for the crux. May 21, 2008
