/ Spanish guidebook phrases
Espit (bolt, I gather?), burile, parabolt, clavos, bicoins (nuts?), gancho, chapas?
Thanks for the link (and sorry for my epic search fail), but the links in that topic are all dead, and I dont have an iPhone to download the app.
Also, what the hell is 'Ae' as a grade? I understand A0->A5, but Ae?
Ae is basically A0. Aid moves using fixed gear: bolts, "buriles", pitons. If I am not wrong the "e" stands for "equipado" which mean equipped.
Im unsure about the others sorry.
Ok, so this is starting to make more sense. Bicoins are nuts, parabolts are bolts, clavos are pitons and gancho apparently translates as hook - presumably in the aid climbing sense of a skyhook or similar. Which just leaves the questions, what the hell is a buril, and what is the difference between a spit/espit, and a parabolt (one of the guidebooks seems to make a distinction)?
AFAIK a parabolt is a nice new expansion bolt.
Chapas are hangers though I'm not sure if that's all hangers or a specific type
Burils & spits are basically hand drilled small diameter bolts
