" The bizarre trend in mountaineers is not the risk they take, but the large degree to which they value life. They are not crazy because they don't dare, they're crazy because they do. These people tend to enjoy life to the fullest, laugh the hardest, travel the most, and work the least." -Lisa Morgan.

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.
