Always respect your elders, especially if you plan on living long enough to be one.

I use hike and climb. I know that "climbers" consider a climb exactly that , and they consider hiking what the rest of us do. The line does blur, when you're ass deep in the trap dyke, or going up saddleback on the backside. If you summit, traditionally, you say you've "climbed" a mountain. I've hiked in colorado, and I would consider many of those trails more of a "hike" compared to what we have here in the Adirondacks.

ahh yes, but what is the difference between walking flatlands and hiking flatlands? (I really don't care, just trying to be a pain in the neck )

My opinion...

Rock climbing = using ropes and harnesses and other technical gear to climb near vertical rock face

Mountain climbing = hiking to the top of a mountain; may involve some scrambling

Hiking = walking in the woods
