lThis 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.

(Editors Note: The Practice Cliffs category has been removed from the U.S. data and replaced with Artificial Walls.)
