I started climbing 6 months ago and finally need to understand the climbing nomenclature when it comes to terrain angles. So, I would like to ask the climbers how the following angles would be called. I also state what I would guess:
- 90 degrees: "vertical"
- greater 90 degrees: "overhang"
- ~180 degrees: "roof climbing"
- <90 degrees: no idea (asked many people, no one knows)
Additional question: When a climbing shoe review mentions that a shoe is good in "steep terrain", and I read this phrase a lot, then what angle would that be? I guess it means overhang, but then why wouldn’t they simply say overhang? I would also be interested to know how this all would be called in German, which could be relevant for anyone who would like to climb in the Alps.
