What do you call the main tie-in ring on the front of a harness?

What do you call the part of the rope that a DdRT hitch is wrapped around?

What do you call the part of the rope between a DdRT hitch and the anchor knot? Working part?

Climbers who use NT harnesses call it a delta since the default hardware is a delta screwlink.

Assume you're not talking about the bridge (what's used to tie the Blake's in a trad DRT system)

Working End or Up Rope

It just seems odd that there is apparently no generic name for this. We call it the delta or pear but there is no established generic term?

There are so many different kinds of climbing harnesses with as many different sorts of attachment points, usually the names are specific to the harness design.

On rock harnesses it's usually described as the \"harness tie-in point\".

Harness attachment points are sometimes identified by their anatomical location on the wearer as well.

Sternal - chest
Dorsal - back
Ventral - waist
