/ Romer for slope gradients
Looking for a romer with different scales that I can lay against the map contours to assess slope gradients for ski-touring. Anyone know where I can find one?
I've seen transparent plastic cards, exactly as you suggest, available in Switerland/Austria/Bavaria, but not here. Mammut used (and may still do) a free one roughly credit card sized which was great until I broke it! I think also SwissTopo sell one on their website (which dispatches to the uk)
However as the previous poster suggests, that thread is an equally useful resource.
Noticed one here: http://www.theoutdoorshop.com/showPart.asp?part=PN84031
Would this do the trick? http://www.shavenraspberry.com/navigators-map-slope-angle-tool
That's a different thing - you'd use that to measure the angle of a slope, not measure the distance between contours on a map to calculate what the slope angle will be...
