Rockfax Description
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. © Rockfax

Tom Redwood 24 Mar, 2018 Lead O/S Epic route with perfect weather, lead the main bit, Joe jogged up the scramble at the top (couple of runners). Very different weathering to the rock than on other sea cliff routes I've tried, probably due to being battered at the edge of the Castle Helen cliff, lots of pinches and a few awkward pull over/around moves which maintained interest, just enough good holds and gear appear though to keep fun factor above fear factor!
