Is "crag" same as "cliff"? It seems like at the beginning of the video, the narrator said "cliff."
Yes, that's correct. They are synonyms for each other, and in fact, a crag is a type of rocky or jagged cliff. The speaker has most likely used "crag" here to diversify his word choice and make the story sound more interesting. Generally, "cliff" is used more commonly. Ex: The group slowly hiked up to the top of the cliff. Ex: There was an eagle's nest on the rocky crag.
