Tanya, I have a climbing question. When a person goes down the wall, that's rappeling.
How about when a person climbs UP the wall?
Is that called free-climbing? Regards to your awesome photos. Take care!

Not the singer ;)

If a person goes back up the rope, it is called ascending or "jugging" the rope. If a person goes back up the wall using only the natural rock features to get up, and has a rope connected just to catch in the event of a fall, it is called free climbing. If the free-climber doesn't have a rope, then he is free-soloing. If a climber uses any sort of artificial gear like a bolt, climbing protective nuts, cams, or hooks, etc to aid in getting back up, then it is considered "aid climbing".

And great beta. On the north side
of Arizona's Roosevelt Lake, there's a
landform called Dutch Woman Butte. At
the base of the butte, there's a slot
canyon called "The Jug." You just
mentioned the word "jugging." I wonder
if there's a connection there! Cheers.

Ha, ha! You're having enough work with
getting the NAMES of those peaks and
buttes straigtened out in east Zion, right?
Sorry I can't help you there. I just point
to them with my mouth open, and nothing
