How fancy do they need to be?

 

Suunto are the Rolls Royce of clinometers hence the price. I've got one but i very rarely use it. You can do it with a regular compass clinometers but the sighting has a bit less accuracy. They'll set you back 5 quid to 40 quid.

 

Do you know any school teachers? If so look in their maths & geography supply books and there may be something in there.

I'd have one of those in a shot. Unfortuantly they're very expensive the discounted end of line model before thast was about 1500 quid. Does the hard work for you though.

 

We are the UK distributor of those aswell :thumbup1:
