Anyone know the translation of these words:

jaraposa
placa

For some reason, online translators do not have definitions for these words:) But they do have "diedro" (dihedral)!

Thanks!

Are you looking at a Spanish guidebook and if so which one? What context are those words written?

I am looking at the topo for Mediterraneo. I suspected "placa" meant slab and I think "jaraposa" means "crux" (...or "fragile, potentially unrepeatable hooking").

Below is the topo:

Placa means slab, Jaraposa doesn't mean anything (I guess Gallego brothers named it for some reason only they know), Toblerone is a trademark for a Swiss chocolate bar (again I guess they called it for some personal reason), techo means roof and común a la ruta NOSE means common with NOSE route.

"haraposa" means "ragged", and in Spanish, a "j" sounds like an English "h", so I think it's just a misspelling on the topo. That's at the height of the gray bands, which are sort of rough and ragged.

It makes sense. A misspelling on Desnivel magazine, too...

Is it true that the spaniards refer to their pigs as putas? Brilliant usage if so!
