I thought your feet went in the crack when you crack climbed? :)

When you climb a crack that could possibly have face holds, it is considered fair game. Unless the route denotes only hands and feet in the crack then the route would require it. As long as you use the crack primarily it is still considered a crack climb. Does this help?
