    steep or slope

    Hi guys,

    Please check this.

    "On normal days, when it gets this bright, I am climbing up that slope(or I don't know might be steep, I mean from down to up) but today I have got late".

    You can climb a slope. You can't climb a steep - it's meaningless.

    Re: steep or slope

    But you can climb a steep slope, as long as you are skillful enough.

    Not a teacher.

    It's grammatically correct, but nobody would ever say it.

    This is grammatical too, but complete rubbish: 'Every alternate April, after a quiet thunderstorm, I think about jumping over a low fence, but today I watched "CSI" instead'.
