AFAIK our one example of {Sal} in canon refers to mountains:

  SaqSub'e' muSHa'bogh 
  pawmeH leng qeylIS
  HuDmey Sal ghIq ghIr 

  And Kahless traveled to
  His beloved Saq'sub,
  Over the mountains  [PB]

Cf. another example of {ghIr} "descend", also WRT {Hudmey}:

  HuDmeyvo' ghIr chaH 
  Over the hills, they came. [PB] 

Related words:

pep 		raise (v)
toS 		climb (v)
jIm 		heave (aircraft) (v)

ghIr 		descend (v)
chagh 	drop (v)
pum 		fall (v)
Dej 		collapse (v)
