What's an "insertion hike"?

I read it as referring to big walk ins where you need the pack to temporarily carry extra gear that you'll then stash before starting the actual climb.

That makes sense.

It's where you abseil out of your attack helicopter as it hovers above the cross on the floor and go for a hike.

That's what I'd pictured too.

  Covert insertion under cover of darkness > assault the target using nightvision goggles and air support > kill the terrorist head honcho > release the hostages > go and climb a 3 pitch VS, but DNF because Dave got pumped after reaching the second belay stance after losing blood from that enemy grenade > sack it off and go  to the pub.

Abseil? Rap, if you please.

Now poor Dave hasn't got any scars to show off to the barmaid with the big jugs.

Just playing on the idea that anyone who says “insertion hike” is more likely to say “rap” (like them damn Yankees) than “abseil” - nowt personal!
