The real beauty of the PoleClinometer slope meter is it’s so quick and easy. No stopping to dig through pockets for your device. Your pole is always in your hand. Just dangle it, and sight your slope angle! You can literally take measurements in the skintrack at a moment’s notice without even breaking stride. Most users find they take slope angle readings far more frequently with their PoleClinometer slope meter than they did with their prior inclinometer devices. Lots of quick measurements as you move through the mountains add up to a better overall picture of where the risky terrain might be.
