Words are for Nerds?

Maybe, but we at Vertical Life love them and are running a little competition all to do with words - climbing words, or climbing slang in particular. See our spiel below, or visit this link to find out more:

"VL loves words. And loves climbing. And words about climbing. So we are running a competition to find the best Australian (and New Zealand!) climbing terms; the stuff we shout when weíre having a win or when we canít catch a trick, that we use to describe dodgy gear placements and crapping our dacks on death-route runouts.

Itís no surprise that VL loves Matt Sametís Climbing Dictionary and we have four copies to give away as prizes for the best entries. Enter as many times as you want, just send us the word, a definition and a creative usage example.

You can post your words to our Facebook page, here on Chockstone or email us at The winners will be announced in a gala blog post at 5.00pm AEST on Wednesday June 6th."

I've got Samet's book and I can't recall "Trad Wanker" featuring. Is this a term peculiar to Australia, or perhaps even be drilled down further to Tassie?

Doug no doubt any derivation of wanker has a distinct Aussie flavour, not sure if there are more wankers down in Tassie than the rest of Oz though.

There is a climb in Hobart called Trad Wankers Must Die. I thought that was what the reference was about. And its Surf Nazis Must Die, anyway. Great 80s movie!

Brilliant flick, like a better version of Point Break (and not only better because Keanu is not in it).
