Smear : you smear when you do not have a foothold, and rely on the friction of the wall and your shoe. Hvis du føler dig ustabil med din smøre, læg mere tryk og vægt på det for at øge friktionen.

 

Backstep: when you backstep your reach is heightened. That extra push from the back is important when you need an extra inch of reach. It can also be used as when taking a rest, because when you backstep, you twist your hips making it closer to the wall.

 

Flag: you might have seen climbers doing this move (which can actually look fairly graceful). Flagging is done by swinging a limb out to counter balance your weight. When the holds you’re using are on one side, flagging can help you shift the weight to the other side.

 

Stemming: stemming is when you utilize two opposing planes to climb. You counter the pressure to stay in balance by using your leg muscles, so it can be used when your arms are already pumped and you want to take a rest.

 

Edging: edging is literally what it sounds like: you use the edges of your shoe when using a foothold. The right way to this technique is to utilize the toe’s edges.

 

Dyno: when you dyno, you’re completely off the wall for a brief moment as you jump for a hold. Some climbers opt to use dyno moves more, which is why there’s a style of climbing called “dynamic climbing”

 

Drop knee: the concept of the drop knee is similar to a backstep but it’s more extreme, in the sense that you actually drop your knee down until the outside of your shoe rests on the hold and your knee points down.

 

Bump: a bump is done when you touch a hold then immediately move to another hold. Bumping is done when you can’t reach the better hold right away, so you “bump” to the preferred hold.

 

Deadpoint deadpoint like a dyno move relies on momentum, but it’s a more swift than a dyno. The climber just hops to reach a hold.

 

Match: you match when you place either both your hands or feet on the same hold. Matching with your hands lets you stabilize since your weight is concentrated on one hold. It can also help you prepare as you reach for another hold. Matching your feet on a foothold enables you to

 

Jam: jamming is often used in outdoor climbing. Instead of using normal holds, you insert your hand, feet, sometimes even your whole limb into a crack and using them as an anchor to secure a hold.

 

Mantle: Mantle is the opposite of the usual climbing orientation (where you pull down a team) since this technique involves pushing down the team with your arm, then you move your foot up to the team.

 

Hooking: there are two types, the heel hook and the toe hook. When you 're very hooked , use your whole or your foot to lock yourself in a team and use it as an anchor to pull yourself up. Two toe hook,  you cling to your corner, a lip, or an undercling. Then hooking can keep you from swing off.
