Hey! That little thing look's unprotected, I'd at least use a Lambskin. Great personal photo and it seem's to be getting a lot of attention already in a short time. I think you should place a bolt there though!
Oh ya, forgot to mention you Folk's in "Sierra Vista" are as crazy as us in Tucson.

Although the crack is small I still imagine that using cupped hands will help someone tick that crack of their list.

I have the super secret beta that this IS NOT a baby's butt... The "nice girl" in question would make most climbers get a little too gripped to place gear, though. Don't know how Daryl managed to get a chick that hot to let him get his chalky fingers within camming distance of her!! :-)

Yes, Daryl, this comment is for YOU, man...!
