45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A tremendous pitch of escalating difficulty. Climb the lower easier-angled face to a possible stance at 15m. Continue up the wall until it steepens, from where increasingly intricate climbing leads to the final bolt. Finish directly up the wall just to the right of the rib to a lower-off. An 80m rope is required to reach the ground otherwise split at the lower-off at 15m. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
First pitch 20m F4, Second pitch F6a+ 25m

rtdennison 29 Aug AltLd Did in 2 pitches with a 50m rope, which is just enough to get by! First pitch isn't too exciting, but the second pitch is absolute quality! Got a bit lost just before the crux and so faffed around a lot but managed not to let the wind scare me off, psyched!

Will Hunt 27 Jun Lead dog Shambles. Got spooked, maybe not quite taking the right line, and pulled on the rusty bolt to get it clipped. Quite a lot working against you on this which isn't really belied by the grade.

Dave Turnbull 12 Aug, 2016 Lead O/S Not sure whether its a classic! Slopey holds and well spaced bolts made it seem hard, although the wet streak and the gale blowing probably had something to do with that.

roger whetton 8 Sep, 2015 - Certainly good but perhaps not quite as good as expected. Rather "sportingly" bolted and could certainly do with another bolt at the top!

Frank the Husky ??, 2015 - A good route but certainly not worthy of being one of the Top 50 in Northern Limestone. Although the final wall is the boldest section, the technical crux is a bolt or two below that.

ebf 22 Jul, 2012 Lead O/S This and the route next door (Walking the Dog) are worth going to this sector for. Both good quality starred routes with very little loose rock, fantastic situations and views from the top and more than enough to get interesting. I thought this was a hard F6a+ for the top pitch, but don't let you put that off - great route.
