    Recommend me a clinometer?

    thanks.

    also, are a hip chain and measuring wheel redundant?

    scuse me for being clueless, I am trainable really.

    Get the 360LA

    Pretty easy to use, and it's about the best price I found on the web. If you are lucky to get to get these things locally, kudos! If not CSP was professional and easy to deal with.

    The Brunton and Suunto are pretty comparable in ease of use and function. Get the cheaper one.

    2nd Bonus Tip. If you forsee not getting a second person to help check slope... get a buddy on a stick. Get a approximately 6 foot stick/pole and stick a tennis ball on said stick. It'll allow you to plant it, set the tennis ball at eye level and then walk away to check the slope.

    Stole that one from one of the MMBA veterans. It's always best to get a second set of eyes, but not always possible.

    I kid, of course. Drop a PM to Diamond Dave. He has a mighty nice one. I don't recall where he got it, though. Don't tell him I sent you or he'll never respond to you. He doesn't really like me any more. You make a pass at a guy's wife one time and you're labeled for life.....

    I have the Suunto model that IMBA lists in their resource section for tools. I purchased it online at Forestry Supply. It's the only one I've used so I can't compare it to the others mentioned. It's easy to handle and use. I like it a lot.

    I do highly recommend a clinometer in general. Every time I use it I'm humbled by how bad my eyes are at reading slope.
