The Climbing Dictionary, In this hilarious illustrated lexicon of climbing terms & slang, Matt Samet has compiled a reference of more than 600 terms used by climbers & mountaineers around the world. The Climbing Dictionary runs the gamut from technical terms (belay, harness, rappel, Stopper) to slang (dab, choking the cobra, Gaston, old dad, pimpy), to regional (such as the Southwest's baby-butt slopers), antiquated (Goldline, press-up), and foreign terms that have achieved universal usage (a cheval, colonnette) and much more. Each word's definition includes its part of speech, origin (if known), its meaning, and a humorous but factually sound example sentence to demonstrate usage.
