Climbing a route called impact day and impacting the floor. I fail to see how that isn't Irony.

It's appositeness.

In reply to highclimber:

It would be ironic if the route was called "No way will you fall off this", but not if the name matches reality.

She said afterwards 'I expected it to feel easy'. Now that is irony...

In reply to highclimber:

Irony is the opposite of what is expected ie decking off a route called "Safe As Houses".
