Sisyphus Summits questions. Hauling?

I am thinking of giving this line a go sometime in late June/ early July and have a few questions. First off, I dont think my partner is going to be up for climbing 22 pitches in one day, so we were considering splitting the pitches over two days and bring a portaledge on the line. How feasible is it to haul a smaller grade V bag and ledge on the route? Is it possible to rap the route (I know its a walk off, I am just wondering)? And lastly, how is the weather in late June/ July?

I would not recommend trying to bivy on route. There is a ton of loose rock near the route and a fair amount of rockfall. The pitches are only 20-25m each and you can double up on most of them which means you are only doing 11-12 pitches. The route is setup so you can rap the entire thing with a single rope, so if you can't finish it you can bail.

Enjoy, it's a great route!

Are there any long sport routes I could bring a ledge on? My partner kind of wants to sleep on a ledge as she has yet to do it and I am inclined to support it.
