What would be the recommended gear you would want to bring to a single pitch sports route if you were in charge of bringing it all? (Additional gear beyond the basic draws, shoes, harness, rope, belay device)

speakers and amp for ipod/iphone
stick-clip
collapsible camp chairs
beanies
cooler & beer
instructional dvd on you iphone on how to grunt and scream, Chris Sharma style
1.75 dogs per climber (round up as necessary to avoid fractional dogs)

Some of this has distinct cross-over to bouldering.

Small adjustable wrench is nice to keep in the pack for the occasional loose hanger.

Also, I generally prefer the gasoline generator to run my iPod speakers. Easier on the planet than disposable batteries.
