Other than the rack of cams stoppers and tricams. Double and single length slings, and biners, I carry a few things.

On my back left gear loop: I carry a prussik loop on a snapper. A nut tool, trango knife, quick link, and an emergency tibloc ascender on an oval. A pas which I girth hitch to my harness and clip to that gear loop with a locker.

Back right: two lockers with ATC guide and gri.

Ice clipper slots: (rock season) all spare carabiners including three lockers

Haul loop: approach shoes when climbing, cordalette (25') w/ pear locker

Front loops are designated for the rack.

One full loop of webbing around my shoulders to rack gear as I second and hold any alpine draws not on my shoulders or clipped to my harness while leading

This is all over top of my black diamond shot backpack

I typically bring some quick draws, some slings over the shoulder and some extra lockers and shit. But more importantly, i carry the latest copy of barely legal rolled up and jammed into a magazine holder i made out of duck tape, i like to have a little something to read at the belay. mitchy burks

i try and integrate my back up and rescue stuff into my rig so i am not caring extra stuff as much as possible. I have my chalk bag on webbing which can be tied into a loop for a kleimhiest or left as an anchor. I close it around my waist with two rap rings one steel one aluminum. I have one quick link on my haul loop. If I need to jug up a Line i have my reverso in guide mode and the Kleimheist. it would not be difficult to rig a YOYO style set up with slings in addition to these items. If i drop my device I can rig a tube from the rap rings, so there is no need to munter or use a biner brake. I keep a razor blade taped inside the zipper pocket of my chalk bag for cutting tatt off. I dont like to carry extra nonsense but these items would be a great help if the respective situation would occur and you never regret having a little webbing or rap stuff so why not get some purpose out of them while you carry them versus using non load bearing bullshit for that purpose.

Depending on route. My typical rack is 4, double 3, double 2, double 1, double .75, .5, .3, nuts, tricams, 120mm trad anchor with 2 lockers, 9 runners, 5 draws, nut tool, guide style belay. Sometimes prussiks and 10' webbing for cheap bailing. Knife in chalk bag is definite. Usually keep my gear on a shoulder strap and draws, runners, passive and anchor on harness as leader and prussiks, spare webbing, and shoes/water/rain gear as follower. dougmac

I like the quote from old mr Black Diamond: "The more you know, the less you need." That holds true for climbing.

So it makes sense for different people to carry different amounts of gear on the same climb. If you know exactly the pro you need, carry just that - if you have no idea and want to climb it without beta, carry what you think you might need, which will probably be more.

I am sure the weight on my harness will decrease as my knowledge increases. For now, on most climbs I carry

2 prussic loops on lockers
Large locker for munter and
Belay device (if I'll be following)
2 small lockers
2 48" extendable draws
2 24" extendable draws
1 10' loop cordalette
6-8 quickdraws
gerber multitool in zippered pants pocket

I have a short memory, so I'm starting to bring a notebook and pen (i.e. "no good rap station from top of pitch 3") Usually put an extra belay device on partner's harness. I also make sure my partner is familiar with all the gear and how to check and use it.
