Is it called "sending" a route even if you fell in the process of getting to the top?
(Or, is there some other term for climbing a route even though you've fallen in the process?)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe:

"Sending" = successfully climbing to the top of a route, no matter how many times you fell

"Redpointing" = successfully climbing to the top of a route without falling, after failing to do so before

"Flashing" = successfully climbing to the top of a route on your first attempt, without falling, after only observing someone else climb it

"On-Sighting" = successfully climbing to the top of a route on your first attempt, without falling, and without first observing someone else climb it

Sending implies that you did not fall or weight gear in anyway. The word you are looking for is hangdogging.

So, "sending" and "redpointing" are exactly synonymous?

I'll have to assume that if you attempt to send a route and you do make it to the top despite falling once or twice, that is simply "attempting to send the route"...
