Roberttaylor 10 Oct, 2009 Lead O/S Tried to do Sylvan Way, ended up doing this while thinking it was Sylvan way. I used three quickdraws to build the belay and so ran out just after the airy traverse, meaning I had to improvise somewhat when it came to gear. I placed a sling round a shallow flake and used a wallnut to hold it in place, hanging some hexes for good measure. Emma seconded it no problem, despite the fact she faced a few massive swings if she came off. Done in two pitches.
