Description 

This boulder is to the Northeast of the large, prominent spire on the South side of Mt. Baldy. Look for a large Ponerosa Pine on the South side of the boulder, near a crack running up and right which hosts the boulder's namesake "Obtuse" (V6), a slopey, awkward problem. There is a large deadfall to the south of this boulder.


Getting There 

See South Mt. Baldy access directions, the picture, and the description above to find this boulder.

Both feet go to the right of the crack. Stand strong on the feet and reach high with the left hand to the sloper. Pop your right hand up the crack, then move the left hand onto a higher sloper. Heel hook and move your right hand onto another bad sloper, then pull up to a jug. The landing on this problem is excellent....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
