A hook is totally a legit stance in my book. I'd rather drill from a shitty stance than from a suspect hook any day. At least that way you'll know when you're about to take the ride.
Vitaliy;
Creativity is the key, I drilled a bolt hanging from my nut tool last weekend. It was a wildly flexing flake, but supported enough weight where I could milk a horrible stance enough to free my hands to drill. No way I could have done it without that hook. The bolt before that one was drilled where there was no real stance. Only a left and right facing flake about five feet apart where I found I could do the splits and use my lack of flexibility to free my hands.

Sometimes, like what Bob said, you gotta go with the tap,tap,tumble method. I've spent hours trying to get a drill bit deep enough to where I could hang from it.

Bump!

Stance-drilled a sketchy 1/4" in soft rock with a questionable hanger and topped it all off with a weird tie-off...

Munge,

too busy trying to figure out how to 1) stand on that crap foothold, 2) hold the hammer in my right hand, 3) hold the drill in my left hand and most importantly, 4) NOT FALL to post up.

5) Look determined and ruggedly handsome in pics of yourself stance drilling.

Of course 4), so that you may post these up also.

Put up the start of a crack route a couple weeks ago but had to drill the anchor for p2. My stance was the same size as my foot and I was still shaking like a leaf!

I'll take a hook on a daisy any day
