What about wind?

Wind is not your friend in this case. You won’t get a good reading from your PoleClinometer slope meter if the wind is blowing your pole around. If you take a lot of slope readings from windy ridgetops, you’ll probably want a second form of inclinometer with you (see above). But PoleClinometer will still be very handy for quick “on the go” slope angle readings when you’re not exposed to high winds.
