everyonce in a while i bring some small nuts with me on sport climbs just in case there's a manky bolt or a run out section. For most climbs though you just need quickdraws, rope etc.

You are forgetting the most important piece of equipment. You gotta remember your snorkel. What, you don't own a snorkel? You better pick one up before you go climbing next.

All sounds good. Like 'calgary said, bring a daisy chain or whatever else you use for your personal anchor (I have a dedicated 24" sling, girth hitched to me harness, and a locker).

Oh, and a camera and/or photog!

Make sure that your gear sling is comfortable. An uncomfortable sling can be very painful during a climb. You may also want to bring an eight.
-Happy climbing.
-Peace.
