I was wondering about that, I did Pintle LHV over the Oz Day weekend and couldn't remember any finger crack.

If you've got really strong fat fingers you could do Banana Blase as a shallow finger crack ...

Actually if you have the fingers of an 11 year old girl there's a section of finger crack on Angels too ...

The top pitch of Wicked Solitaire also has an enjoyable small section of fingers leading into the hand crack at the top. I really like that pitch actually.

Mmm impressive lines Gerry. Obviously tassie has a bunch, I can think of quite a few and I've only climbed Mt Wellington and launceston gorge.

my fingers slotted in beautifully on every part of Where Angels Fear to Tread; not so much my knees or elbows.
