I'm so bad at crack climbing. One of my climbing buddies is an excellent crack climber, and overall stronger than me, yet we're pretty much the same in face climbing, I might be a little better even. I can struggle up the easiest crack in the gym, the "5.7 Perfect Hands", but anything harder or outdoors, forget it. I can usually get a pretty good hand jam, but I never know what to do with my feet! I shove my footsies in there and wedge em good, but it never seems to be solid or supportive at all. It's rather frustrating.
