<< Lighthouse Arete < Lighthouse Arete Direct | Pel > Castell Helen Girdle >>
A decent route although it is run-out in places. Start from the triangular niche.
1) 5a, 42m. Head straight up the groove to a quartz break, and move left into a groove system. Follow this, trending left until level with the Lighthouse Arete roof. Move through the overlap onto a headwall and head diagonally right to an overlap. Make a committing series of moves up the final crack to easier terrain and a ledge on the arete and belay.
2) 4a, 30m. As for the rest of Lighthouse Arete P3.
