We are planning to climb the Nose in a party of three. Any suggestions? Should we bring a ledge?
Thanks!

If you have to ask, then the answer is yes.

No. Go for the full value.

The Nose has plenty of ledges at strategic locations. Problem is it is soooooo crowded that the ledges could be full, in which case a portaledge would come in handy.

The Salathe gets much less traffic . . .

Nobody does the Nose anymore, it's too crowded.

Camps IV, V & VI are comfortable for 1, crowded for 3. A double portaledge will make it comfortable for all. And probably slower.
