I've only done RNWF as a day climb. The "bivies" at the 6th and 12th pitches looked a bit grim. Big sandy is pretty long, but rather narrow. I wouldn't call it Big (and it doesn't really have any sand any more either).

Doing it in two days with a night at big sandy wouldn't be too bad. Otherwise..., a ledge would be nice but that is a long way to hump/haul it.

The route stays in the shade until ~2:00pm and is at a moderatley high elevation. Spring and Fall can be cold mornings. Summer is hot after 2:00 pm (but in a day climbers are usually in the chimneys during the hottest part). Most popular time is all summer long with the longer days of sunshine.
