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.
