Description"Obtuse" starts to the right of the tall Ponderosa Pine in front of the boulder.
Start with your left hand on a far away sidepull, right on a pinch in the crack. 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.
