The aim of this paper is to give a taste of a multifarious world of names that have been linguistically unexplored so far. The author's further intention is to discuss the motivations of individual names, based on interviews conducted with rock climbers, on the basis of the aspectual and general onomatological analysis presented here. Another interesting area to investigate would be the names of rock climbers' paths in other languages described in a contrastive framework that could eventually lead on to the discovery of universals in naming rock climbers' paths.
