I found the first pitch fairly straight forward, more like HVS 5a and easier than the polished first pitch of Mealystophyles!. I erroneously went right at the top of pitch 1 and had to back track over to the left. Really nice upper wall.
Andrew Sloan - Lead rpt - 27/Jun/15 with Tim
didn't do the second pitch, but need to record that I did the first pitch. Also did Mephistopholes again, did some gardening on the 2nd pitch which will help as they are the crux holds which had grassed over, no wonder it was difficult last time.

Did not see it as easy E1 myself but then not done that much trad recently. First pitch a bit goey, seconded second pitch

Mackie ran two pitches together as one, I thought the crux was in the second half?

wonder if a more logical and consistent route would be to do 2nd pitch of mephistopheles? might have to go back and find out
Alex@home - 2nd O/S - 25/Jul/12 with The Doctor
E1 in my opinion, 5b move at start of strenuous and steep extended crux sequence, great gear tho.
marcoleptic - AltLd O/S - 28/Apr/12 with Alan
Led P2'. Think I need to lead the first pitch to get the proper tick.

Joe led first pitch, i ended up leading most of the second pitch of mephistopheles as we weren't sure on the line and it seemed the best way to go. Couple of spicy moves then eases.

Pitch 1 - E1 5b and not soft at that. Felt the belay on the terrace was a bit poor so used the tree above instead.

First pitch is definitely E1. Excellent climb, did top pitch in the rain...
smudge - Lead O/S - 08/Sep/10 with John St Leger
Excellent crux moves, clearly E1 but with good gear below you. led as one big pitch which made it even better 3 stars combination??? (only just enough rope with my not quite 50m rope)

Very nice P1, definitely E1 though good gear. On P2 at the small break with a peg in it traversed left into the wide crack of Mealystopheles / Mephistopheles as thought the route went that way. This section (including getting to the small break) felt quite hard for 5a!
