Toe Hooking

The act of using your feet in the same way that you would use your hands when climbing pitches where the angle kicks back and climbers are forced to “crawl” upside down along the rock. Toe hooking, as well as heel hooking, is a technique to move up a wall or out from under a roof, while keeping your body close to the rock. The use of the feet will take the weight off of your arms. Toe hooks require pressure and pull, and climbing shoes will be a great asset in this situation. The rubber outline of the shoe, or the rand, will make this technique much easier. 

Live Out There Definition:

Hooking your toes into an angled back pitch on a rock outcropping may sound like a last resort when you're dangling from the underside of a rock and simply trying not to fall, but then again, when you are dangling from these places, you will want to use everything you can to make sure you remain alive. The moral of this story is that rock climbing is crazy and dangling from an upside down rock at a death defying angle, hundreds of feet in the air, is scary and it’s really no wonder at all that your mother worries about you.
