Worth noting that chickenheads DO break. I almost bought the little ranch when one broke on me. And it was way more bomber lookin' than either of those little biscuits.

That may qualify as a bajankity-anchor. Also known as a "bajanchor."

At least they're equalized (sort of).

Love "bajankity" BTW. We have the best made-up words of any sport.

Here are a couple of good ones: "drifted" (for winter usage) which means to drop an ice screw into deep and soft snow, and lose it til spring, as in, "Yeah, I drifted a screw from the second pitch. I'll, like, totally never find that one." And "frosted" which means (as a pejorative), when you claim to have climbed a pitch free, but all your quick draws have chalk all over them: "Dude, he claimed to flash (fill-in-the-blank-route), but did you see his rack? All his draws were frosted." Or, as useful and humble beta: "The pitch is gnarly .11c, but if you frost a draw at the crux it's barely five-ten."

And here's another one: hangle: the wad of rope that results when you toss your rappel rope off but it gets all tangled up and just hangs there, about 50 feet down.
