So the other day I was climbing with a friend who had just came back from central America. To practise our spanish, we decided that to only use spanish while climbing. I realized though, that never having climbed in a Spanish speaking country, my vocab was super limited. So, I started a list of climbing vocab... Feel free to correct any mistakes and add your own!

Knot: Nudo
Tight: Apretado
Loose: suelto
Rope: Soga, cuerda
(to) fit: Ajustarse
(to) wrap: Envolver
(to) cross: Cruzarse
(to) tie: atar (tie together) - Enlazar
(to) twist: Torcerse N. Torcimiento
(to) follow: Siguirse
(to) pull: Tirar (??)
(to) push: Empujar
piece: Pieza
rubber: (of shoe) caucho
(to) cross : Cruzarse
(to) stand: Poner (stand up, Poner derecho)
(to) Focus: (??) concentrarse
Knee: Rodilla
Elbow: Codo
Wrist: Muñeca
Tendon: Tendón
Ankle: Tobillo
Heel: (of foot) talón (of shoe) Tacón
(to) fall: Caerse N. Caída
(to) hurt: Hacer daño a... , lastimar.
(to) injure: Lesionar, Injury: Lesión
Rapell: Rapellar (???)

What word would be used for Anchor? Mantle? Etc...

HI,

Good idea!I also feel that my English vocabulary about climbing is limited. In my opinion the words that you translated are correct but I would like to add or modify some of them.

Loose: flojo ("suelto" is more like "free, untight")
Rubber: caucho, goma ("goma" is more colloquial)
Rappel: rapelar
Anchor: seguro (bolts...)
reunión (anchor system for belaying)

Can you help with the following words contextualizing them?
wrap, mantle, focus.

You have translated some verbs using the reflexive. As you have the infinitival TO you should translate them into Spanish with the infinitive. Using the reflexive will depend on the context.Wink

Here are some more words:

Sling: cinta espres; espres; cinta
Harness: arnés
Carabiner: mosquetón
Locking carabiner: mosquetón de cierre, mosquetón con seguro.
Nuts: fisureros, empotradores
Cams: friends (English word!!)
Pitons: clavos
Expansion bolt: parabol(t)
Bolt hanger: chapa
Gri-gri: gri-gri, grillo
Lead: de primero
Follow: de segundo
Toprope: toprope, cuerda por arriba
Aid-climbing (=bi wall?): escalada artificial
Sport climbing: escalada deportiva ( a more colloquial word "hacer friqui")
Trad-climbing: escalada de largos, escalada en pared, (alpino?)

I think it is enough for today...Smile
Feel free to correct them or to make a more accurate translation.

Bye...!

Hey great thanks for the corrections! I wasnt sure if flojo or goma were the proper words to use, good to know.

Ha...i think its pretty funny that for Aid-climbing you say escalada artificial!

I put the infinitive '"to" in brackets, and translated using the reflexive so people remember that, depending on context, they can be reflexive too . (Very confusing stuff for English speakers!)


wrap: To put something around something else. Example, "Wrapping a blanket around your body when you are cold."

Mantle: A move used very often in Bouldering for topping-out, pushing downward with flat palms, like a child trying to get on a counter-top.

Focus: Paying very close attention. Similar to 'concentrate'.

Also, are Crimp and Sloper both just used in their English form? How about "Jug" (A really big hold).
Pocket? (small circle-shaped hold).

Hey nice find, and great idea too. If you get it good and organized I`ll take it up with the powers that be to have it added as a permanent resource, not just an obscure thread in Esc.en.Esp.

Obviously slang and jargon differ from place to place.

Chains: cadenas

Mantle: mantle
Crimp: regleta, crimp (v. crimpear)
Pinch: pinza (v. pinzar)
Sloper: sloper, slop
Rock!!: Piedra!!
FALLING!: CAIGO!
Slack!: Cuerda! Dame cuerda!
Tension!: Ténsame!
Lower me: bájame
Pull me: jálame
to Lead: puntear, escalar de punta
to Belay: asegurar, dar belay
Handhold: agarre
Foothold: pisadera
Dyno: dinàmico, lance
Rest: descanso (v. descansar)

Blood: sangre
Blister: ampolla
Calluse: callo
Fingernail: uña

Alright...I wont be around a computer for awhile but I think it would be great to get this organized into an official resource. So long as some one very fluent in both languages double checks it.

Lucha: Struggle, Fight, Battle.

Esa escala es una lucha cabron! (Found myself needing that one once or twice Wink )
