      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Accurate Declination Tables

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of a site which can give me accurate declination...So I can setup my compass correctly?

 

Im a stickler when it comes to detail and accuracy, and have had a bitch of a time finding a consistent declination for different areas here in WA.

 

Im just not happy when I get 17.3 from one site, and 17.9 on another.......you and I know thats bs in a way.

 

Anyway.......Just wondering if someone can help me on that.

 

Thanks...

Wow, and I thought I was anal!! You can set your compass to within tenths of degrees? I can't even walk that straight.

 

Seriously, you could probably take a look at any of a dozen sites that sell USGS topo maps, select the "preview map" feature or something similar, scroll to the bottom of the map, and get your information from the compass rose there. Just a thought...
