Chickenhead belay. 3rd pitch, Moby Dick. West Stronghold, AZ.  These "heads" are the remnants of a once-larger area of case hardening.  (In addition, case hardening is the slick brown surface on the 4th pitch of Peacemaker on nearby Sheepshead.)  The 2 following photos show other stages of  case-hardening and weathering processes on this rock.
