Certainly people I meet I've never mentioned either climbing or honking.
It's not a 'derogatory' term - it's just a word used to describe riding out of the saddle, usually while making a higher effort level than usual. It's not specific to climbing either.
In the US, honking is to ride so hard you throw up, while climbing out of the saddle is 'danceuse', which I think is the French word.
You don't want to know about bonking
and honking while you're bonking - definately not a great combo!
