there are varrying schools of thought on "Should I bring a ledge on the Nose?" question.

Some say go old school, become one with the stone, go light and sleep on the ledges.

Just remember a few things:
1. the ledges are slopey, bumpy and covered in piss. Will you sleep good?
2. The Nose is crowded and there is a good chance your bivi ledge may be taken. Parties join the Nose from Tripple Direct remember.
3. No portaledge + fly = no shelter = your fucked in a storm, be prepared to do many rappels or die as the Jappanese did two years ago.

Personally I'd rather tote a little extra weight (if you're hauling anyway), have the option to bivi anywhere, including above parties stuck on the ledges, have a safe shelter, and a comfy bed so I get good nights sleep.

but that's just me.

I have no idea what a womb with a view is, if it is some type of hammock, no thanks.
