Good climb, pretty safe I'd say (assuming the pegs are good) and a bit on the soft side.

Kevster - Lead O/S - 24/Oct/10

Retreated last time from quite low down; didn't get any meaningful beta, so putting today's effort down as a clean onsight. We both thought this was a really good climb and worth two stars.

Backed off - head all wrong for run-outs, and thundery rain threatening anyway. Will return

Annoyingly you can get from FG into VDG after its crux, but not so easily vice versa. Therefore VDG is the true inescapable line of weakness ;-).

Done a few times and always done it direct - feels a more natural line
