This is what I have so far.  Is it adequate for big long trad climbs?

And the bourbon to Glenlivet, otherwise good to go.

Solutions work well for skipping bolts and pain.

If you really want people to know you are a beginner, make sure you have tricams and hexes on your rack. Unless you are really old. Then the tricams and hexes make you look badass. So if you are oldster, then you need a double set of very very shiny cams to make sure people know you are beginner.

Butt I'm guessing you ain't old because you can photoshop

Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet but, you're going to want a larger bottle for most longer trad climbs. Especially if you're planning on doing the Dawn Wall

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
