Is it more helpful to do Meteorology or Road Scholar with Glacier/Dynamic?

Probably Meteorology, but severe storms, next years topic won't help as much as climate or day to day weather.

Really? In my experience, I'd say Road Scholar is more beneficial. It's helpful to know how to handle those topo maps that event coordinators throw at you.

How about the division B test? I thought it was quite a good test overall, though the map analysis turned out to be pretty tough. And I do road scholar too :P . Maybe if I had somehow done geologic mapping in the past, I could've cracked top 6.

Also, can someone fully explain to me what exactly a col is? I have this definition:

A saddle-like narrow depression formed by two headward eroding cirques that reduce an arête.

Maybe Road Scholar and Meteorology "Climate" are the best events that support Dynamic.

It's basically a saddle on an arete.

Edit: Wow that was not helpful... let me post a pic.
