A friend and I free climbed up a sandy chimney on the southern aspect of Shelbyville a couple of years back. We weren't sure where the route started and we had been drinking Wild Turkey all day so there's no telling at what grade it went at but I'd guess 5.9 tops. We topped out the first pitch at some fixed anchors and finished per the original route, so it's not necessary to aid to reach this summit.

This is an awesome little climb if you dont mind it a little ruff and dirty. I had a great time if you wanted you could hit of the cam burns tower that is right acrossed the road and make a day of it.
