Assuming you are not attempting alpine style climbing, I think these are the necessary things to carry in your backpack:-

1) Head Lamp with extra batteries
2) Camera with extra batteries
3) At least 2 Litres of water (preferably 2 litres in a Hydration Sack, and another litre in bottle)
4) Hydration Sack
5) Wide Mouth Water Bottle
6) Cat- 3/4 UV Sun Glasses
7) Energy Bars, Chocolates, Nuts, Juice, etc- enough for the march to the summit & back to the summit camp.
8) Emergency Blanket

Equipment (Depends on the peak, snow condition, technicalities, etc)

1) Ice Axe
2) Snow Boot + Crampons
3) Gaiter
4) Hiking Pole (optional)
5) Harness + Descender + Carabiners + Descender + Sling + Jumar
6) Rope

Am I missing out something ? Others, please add :)
Cheers.
