This is a stupid question, but in my Spanish class, the professor is always asking what I did for the weekend. Well, when I ask her what the word for rock climbing is, she doesn't know! So, I'm asking you all, so I can inform her the next time she asks! Muchos Gracias!!

Thanks to all you kiddies that responded! I'm usually pretty good with Spanish, but not knowing that word kind of irritated me, since it's a part of my life! So, thanks again!

escalar seems so un-specific. alpinismo is a misnomer to anything the avrage rock-climber does, (unless you are sumiting a hard mountian like K2 or Everest) how about something like "escalar piedras" or "escalar rocas" I dont know. I've never heard a word in spanish that I liked to substitute "rock-climbing" but please...dont use the english word when speaking in spanish...it sounds really sucky. I live in Santo Domingo and all of the preps here like to use english names for everything. terms like "bolt","rock-climbing",harness","lead","top-rope","cam","trad.","Carabiner","draw","belay" and heck, even "flashlight" and "sleeping-bag" are often used here instead of the spanish word. with as much of the world's population that is fluent in espanol, they should be able to find and use their own names for these terms. conchele

escalada is the synonym for climbing
escalada en roca is rock climbing

the words match eachother quite nicely I think, "climbing" is just as unspecific in english as in spanish

once we get in to the variations such as sport climbing (escalada deportiva), alpinismo (alpine), etc does it branch out and only someone who knows about the different words is going to know what you're talking about

 LAPLAYA:
The problem is that all the dominican climbers who took the climbing lessons between 1996-1999 learned everything in english because the teacher was Chad Wallace. Right now Irving, Quirico, richard and I are the only guys giving the course and we all learned all this terms in english with chad. You are right, we (dominicans) should stop using english terms for climbing and everything, but for now we understand ourselfs with spanglish terms.

Gracias de todos modos.

Here's a challenge for any Spanish-speaking-climber-linguistics-
nerd: Why is the Spanish word for "earing" "arete"? Is there any sort of connection with our definition of arete? Just wondering.
Oh, and "venga" is the command form of the verb "venir" which means "to go". So, the climbers were probably yelling "GO, GO, GO!"

I have a some spanish friends and they not only use "venga" while climbing, but also talking about everything. It´s weird but that´s kind of a general word they use.

Actually the expression "¡venga!" is more like "come on!". In Spain we have a lot of funnny jargon for the same thing. For instance we say "¡Venga bicho!" that means "Come on bug!" or "Vamos jabalí!" that is "Come on wild boar!"...

no queria ponerme mas intelegente que usted pero
venir no es 'to go'
es 'to come'
como 'come on' (venga).
a quien hizo aquella lista de vocabulario de la escalada: gracias, es muy util.

con amor.

In addition to the terms "escalar" and "escalada," I have sometimes opted, with my Mexican friends, to use something simpler, like "subir rocas." They seem to understand. Also, in case anyone is interested, the Korean term for rock climbing is "ahm byuk tng ban."

The word for rock is "piedra"
Subir is the verb "to go up"

So: Subir las piedras - To go up rocks (aka. to rock climb)

to conjugate the verb: Yo subo las piedras - I go up rocks (aka. I rock climb)

to make it past tense: Yo fui subir las piedras - I went to go up rocks (I went rock climbing)

Escalada is correct also, for escalada means "scaling".

My climbing friend from venezuela would say "quien va a puntiar" meaning "who is gonna lead"...or "quieres puntiar?"-"do you want to lead?....

"Venga" means "come" but it more than just "Come" for most most people in Spain, a form of aproval.. "ok", or "lets do it".. sometimes you can hear it at the end of a converation when the person is leaving..
"venga, hasta luego"... or
"venga, pero que linda esa ruta"

Another word is "Vale"
"vale, pero que chula esta esa nena"....

And I aggree about the word "climbing" and "escalando". Most people have no idea when I say "ROck climbing" or "escalando"..I have to give them a mental picture of the ropes, carabiners and all.

Even though the Spanish language is very strong in the states and all over the world it's the English that seems to be the prefference for many to choose when refering to an object, which is a shame. One reason why I enjoy climbing with Argentineans, venezuelans is that they use the words in Spanish and it's really nice to dialog in our own language.

Peace

Como le dicen a un congregacion de "climbers" que no escalan, pero les gustar congregarse en el base de las rocas, ponerse sus arnese, y hablar de climbing? Es solamente una pregunta... pues aqui hay muchos, y creo que los digamos "jevitos."

"escaladores sociales"?

ME recuerda a esos viejitos que se tiran toda la tarde jugando un partido de ajedres or dominos.

Si, vale means WOrthy...pero es otra palabra muy comun en la charla de los españoles.

RockJock...fue bien interesante (pero no sirve con laptops). En quanto "Alpinismo" no creo que sea corecto en ningun pais que no se en los Alpes- anque se usa y se intiende, no es corecto...por eso en sur america se usa "Andinismo" en Colorado seria "Rockyismo" y en Tenn. seria "Apilachismo"
Que Opinan?

in Ecuador and Colombia we dont call it alpinismo or andinismo, we call it montañismo, meaning mountaineering, it makes more sense, cuz it applies to any mountain.
escalar is a good word, but try "trepar", i dont know if thats only used in Ecuador,

about the people who sit and talk about climbing, we call those 'fuleros' coming from 'to fool' in english.

we call the people who get all excited about climbing just when its popular 'noveleros'

QUE VIVA LOS LATINOS!!

anteriomente presente un pequeño glosario con algunas palabras.
cuando se refieren al alpinismo o andinismo son sinonimos pero el termino alpinismo fue el primero ya que esta disciplina se desarrollo primero en europa a finales del siglo xix. con los proyectos del mont blanck.
montañismo es considerado mas como la actvidad en general, es decir todo lo que se refiere a la montaña.(alta montaña,grandes paredes,senderismo, excursionismo,etc.

Mil gracias a todos. Ese comunicacion esta muy interesante y util. Lo siento, por que mi espanol es pobre, pero, me gusta hablar mas con escaladores del mundo latino. Es dificil creer muchos escaladores que hablan espanol usan RC.com.
increable.

I heard somebody was looking for a Spanish-speaking-climber-linguistics-nerd... here I am

camhead-

Arete (the spanish word for earring) and arête (the word in english for a rock feature) are actually not related. The spanish word is the diminutive for 'aro' - 'hoop'. The english word was borrowed from French back in 1838... it means 'fishbone'.

just FYI...

Hope this helps,

Andria (aka cragchica)

No recomiendo que nadie diga al profesor "Chupalo." Como entiendo yo, los espanoles dicen "vale" como una expresion como una interjeccion. Es decir, como muchas palabras en ingles: las ponemos en frases, pero no significan nada.

Umm, well, yea-yea-yea, ya know? Palabras asi se usan, pero no son importantes.

>So: Subir las piedras - To go up rocks (aka. to rock climb). To >conjugate the verb: Yo subo las piedras - I go up rocks (aka. I rock climb)

Nope. "Subir las piedras" means to lift rocks; it's not a direct word-for-word translation. "Me subi a las piedras" just means I went up the rocks, and implies no climbing effort like rock climbing is all about.

"Escalar" is a much better word for climbing--it conjures up thoughts of ropes and strenuous effort. :wink:

In spanish rock climbing is "Escalada en roca", in french " l'escalade" (I think), in norwegian "Fjellklatring", in german " bergsteigen"

Anyone now how to say mountaineering in Chile because when I was there I said montañismo and they either had no idea what I was talking about or they thought I was crazy. Maybe both! I speak decent grino spanish (sad because I'm half Dominican) but in Chile everything is very strange. Word to the wise never say "tomar" there. Funny translation. :roll:

Hi!
In spanish is called "escalar", which is the infinitive. The steps on a set of stairs is a "escalon" and the name "escala". So in spanish, escalar actually means, to climb the ladder. Stairway to heaven, so to speak.

Hi Lizard, well, "escala" is 3rd person of the prensent of the verb "escalar", the name of a set of stairs is not "escala", the right word is "escalera", so actually "escalar" doesn't mean to climb a ladder. The word escalar describes de acction of going up a vertical surface. So rockingnyc, you were saying ok, "escalo en roca" is absolutely right.

Have fun

Hugo
