Word of the day: thrutch

The word of the day is thrutch:

Push, press, or squeeze into a space when climbing


"I kicked to make toe hooks and heel hooks, felt for pockets where I could jam my fingers, and knobs to pinch and slopers to cling to, breathing snoutfuls of dust and sediment, thrutching ever upward."

 - Lori Lansens, The Mountain Story
