Angle Ranking Technique

    Hello everyone, I have been lurking here for a few weeks and decided to share my technique for distinguishing some of the more difficult angle ranking problems. For acute angles where the hill or laptop won't suffice, I attempt to imagine the angles as a grappling hook of sorts. Envision yourself holding the longer leg of the two angles you're trying to distinguish, looking at them upright. Then try to imagine which one would better grip onto a ledge. The smaller angle will be the one that "grips" more tightly on the ledge.

    This is the technique I have been using to distinguish angles with one leg significantly shorter than the other. Hope it makes sense and helps out!
