/ Shipley Glen 7a traverse in Yorkshire Grit Vol. 2?
I've cleaned up an old problem that's not in the previous guidebooks, and it's really not bad. It appears on the Yorkshire Grit site as 'Monkey Business' and I've added it to the database on here.
If anyone from the guidebook team is reading, is this going to be included in Yorkshire Grit Vol. 2? I think it's worth putting in as it's a reasonable problem, if you can tolerate a sit-start sloping lip traverse - it's no more crap than Sloper Patrol, which I understand is considered "classic". And it's a popular grade, and best of all it's quick-drying. So when half of Green Traverse is underwater/slime, there's this to do instead.
If this is your cup of tea, get on it quick before it gets covered in greenness again - believe me, it is much easier and more fun in its current condition.
HELP! What have you done with the real Jon Stewart?
There's no way the real mccoy would get excited about scrittling sideways about 18" off the floor dodging lichen and moss.
I have been possessed by the spirit of the Glen.
As you can imagine, I didn't particularly enjoy scraping myself along what is essentially the ground in that peculiar fashion that boulderers seem so fond of, but since it's so near and it's an easily worked V6 it seemed rude not to.
Just kidding, I've been to Minus Ten recently so can definitely appreciate beauty in the unlikeliest of places.

Its an old problem, not my FA, so sadly I will be forgotten just as easily whether or not this bum scraper (that's the problem, not me) gets into the guide
Keen to get out let me know when up again!
