Timm, I am no crack master nor do I go to Doylestowns gym. I am self taught though. If no one helps you I reccomend a book simply called `crack climbing` in the `How to rock climb` series by John Long. It is not written by Long but Steve Petro and his wife (who is badass but I don't remeber her name...). Or look up diagrams or youtube videos like wild countrys crack school `run` by the `wide boyz`. Good videos. THEN go play on those cracks you speak of. Experiment, experiment, experiment! It'll click for sure if you put effort into it. My effort, since Ilive far from a gym, was building 7 cracks from finger to OW in my house and running laps. It pays off for sure applying time and dealing with frustration.
Then head over to stoney ridge to try your newly found technique out on real rock. Ill meet you at stoney ridge sometime and we can climb together. I've never been but it looks nice, people rave over some of their crack routes, and its not far from you. Enjoy!
