Description 

On the steep South face of the 'Happy Boulder', sit-start on a juggy shelf (same starting holds as 'The Hulk'). Make a tricky sequence up and right onto the arete. Continue up the steep arete heading left on better holds to a few fun last moves.

Stand-start is v2

Pads, spotters

Don't be an idiot on the top out and it gets a lot less scary (for you and your spotter).

A great problem and a must do.

I believe this was named for the large plastic chicken that roosts on top of the Manor Market in Bishop. There are routes named after this hunk of American in the Gorge too. The route Billion Million comes to mind as we would exaggerate the height of the thing and it ended up being a "billion million" feet tall. In reality is about 7 ft high if memory serves.

This is v2 in the book. Don't believe it.

As far as I know, the book's V2 rating assumes a stand start already on the arete. I may be mistaken though!

Yes, the v2 starts standing with the right hand on the good incut at about head height on the arete, skipping the crux of the v4 which is moving from the sit to establish on the arete.
