Description 

Use hand crack to get established. Jam crack above head, pull bulge.

Location 

This is the hand crack located to the left of Mantle in the Sky and to the right of The Apron. Its on the same block as Firewoman.

Don't know if the name is Gaping Crack I think that was what it was referred to in a topo.

Also, anyone know the name of the new problem to the left. Seems to be in the V6-7 range. And is the one to the right between this one and Mantle called "Tits"?

Yeah, I heard from a few guys that it is called Tits V0, I think it is a little harder than that though. What do you think?
