climbing lingo lexicon


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine of is writing a book about mountain folk. He's got a chapter that he wants to dedicate to creating a lexicon of sorts and wanted to include climbing lingo.

There is the obvious stuff, but I figured I'd check and see if anyone had any humorous additions that I could pass along to him as he is frickin hilarious wordsmith.


offwidth (n)

1.a crack smaller in width than a climber's shoulder but too large to jam fists.



1. the act of grown individuals attempting to lodge themselves in a womb like structure. Most attempts are futile and typically capped by tears or loud swearing.



maybe that helps. I was just checking to see if anyone else is as bored as I am on Tuesday morning.
