'This category includes bouldering, as well as artificial climbing walls, buildings, and so forth. These are also added to the count of each state and province, but not to the total count, though that error has been made in previous years. Tables I & II still do not correlate because of this. Correct figures are being worked on.

(Editors Note: Artificial Walls may become a part of the report from now on.)
