I'd avoid the slung horn in favor of a PTFTW.

you would have been better served by the sling in any sort of fall! i'm not sure i would even trust the nut for body weight. although i have done this same sort of thing on granite twice i backed up the piece both times and i had much more rock to deal with in the nut placement. remember, redundency is the key to safety. the only thing that could have been done better with the sling would have been to tie the knot so the sling was tighter around the horn. but with out being there and seeing the situation first hand my opinion shouldn't hold too much weight. however on second glance why not a tri-cam or flex sten cam in the horizontal right below it? the nut is the worst possibe point of protection in the picture
