    How about explaining what to bring when a newer climber is going out to a multi-pitch area, like the Gunks. I was amazed this past year when I went out with several Gym climbers who did not bring a few slings, a nut tool, a prusik, even though they were warned ahead of time with a list of items.

      Hello Al,
      I will put something like this together for you. I could use it myself to share with guests in addition to a checklist.
      Cheers.
