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
