  • cool

    found a list of climbing terms. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossary_of_climbing_terms

    I thought the chicken heads referred to snow because I saw it on skiing pages.

    So, for climbing, it refers to ice and rock horns.

    so, it seems to take on the term because of the size and shape

    link to use of skiing 'chicken heads' although wikipedia can be suspect http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpine_skiing

  • In my rock-climbing days we called obvious and protruding hand-sized rocks and knobs that even a non-climber could employ as a handhold chicken heads. We didn't have a comparable ice term for our ice-climbing of frozen waterfalls and curtains of ice on cliff faces.
