Crag 1st Aid Kit - What's in yours?

Had a good discussion over the weekend regarding what should go in our regular climbing group's 1st aid kit. This would be separate from emergency items such as head lamp, extra snacks, etc. As sport climbers generally climbing no more than about an hour from the car, this influenced our decisions. Also keeping in mind size and weight - for maximum efficiency.

We came up with:

SAM Splint
ACE Bandage
Disinfectant of some kind
Nail clippers (and cuticle clippers because they serve a different but equally important purpose!)

So, what's in your standard day trip crag first aid kit?

I carry a few steri-strips, CELOX gauze, some climbing tape, SAM splint, and a PLB.

Less serious injuries are treated with cursing and whining.

Re-inventing the wheel... There was just an entire thread on this:
