/ climbing terminology
Some are a bit americanised.
Oh and to see some of the techniques in action, Neil Gresham's Climbing Master Class DVD part 1.
Thanks Stacy :-)
Anyone know more of the movement specific terms?
The movement specific terms are in there, you just need to look for them, I did check that before I sent you the link. It has flagging, egyption etc etc. I have no idea what lever or planches are.
Funny story from a couple of young lads at our local wall, when on a route I told one of them he needed to rock-over, he looked at his mate and they both just started laughing. Apparently a few months before they asked one of the wall staff how to do a move on a particular route and she replied "oh that's just a rock-over" not wanting to appear stupid they didn't tell her that they didn't have a clue what a rock-over was, so everytime they got stuck on a route they'd just say to each other "oh, just rock-over". They still didn't know until I told them what it was... that really made me chuckle. :-)
Cheers for that funny story, thing is the same keeps happening to me when I'm bouldering at the wall people will say 'oh you just need to flag/egeyption/match' etc. I generally say thanks but then think wtf did that mean then.
I may get lynched now but I think I met you once at the Roaches when I was ahem 'practising' chalkstorm and you had a go.
Yeah, it is me, I've sent you an email. Hope it helps.
