Bitter End 22m VS 4c
19-Sep-2017, Martin Scrowston. Mike Withers. Ashley Cooper.

The fine central slab left of Trambiolina has a big feel. Start at the extreme right hand side of the buttress 5 metres right of Trambiolina.

Steep climbing for 3 metres and a move left leads to a junction with Trambiolina. Traverse horizontally left to gain good holds and follow the slab above. Make a committing step right and up to gain access to a small heather ledge. Finish up the wall above.

The route was named to commemorate the last few pints of Yates beer served in the ODG that evening as the curtain came down on the brewery.

NB Trambiolina has had a brush off and is also deserving of a star. These routes can be easily accessed via the in situ rap point on Middlefell Buttress. There is now a good abseil belay in place above the routes to enable an easy descent.
