    small folding scissors are more versatile if I had to choose one or the other, but I have both in my 1st aid kit

    Real men carry their toe nail clippers on a locking carabiner on the outside of their backcountry pack for ease of pedicure access.

    Helps save time in companion rescue scenarios too.

    Yes. And a nice sewing needle and lighter in case you get an impacted nail and/or blister under nail.

    Friend of mine put a Costco sized jar of Skippy peanut butter in my pack a few years ago and it took me three or four trips to notice it.

    I've watched (well, not really watched, was in the vicinity of) a couple people who had to do their business off the skinner without TP. In both cases curses were overheard while they tried to make snowballs out of Wasatch dry fluffy snow then a whole repertoire of amusing noises were made when said snowball were used. The next 30 minutes were full of complaints of wet underwear and itchy butts.
    I'd say the majority of my climbing partners don't carry TP and will use leaves or a rock (I know...). Good buddy of mine will often wear t-shirts with a sleeve ripped off, it's always a hoot to see people's faces when they get the explanation.
    Lack of TP is not as uncommon as you'd think.

    TP is a definite from-experience necessity, as is skin wax (glop stop). I also always have a backup pair of eyewear.

    I always carry a headlamp, even on a 1 hour tour in the middle of the day. If shit gets sideways and the sun goes down, everything is a pain in the ass without a light. If I plan to start or finish in the dark, a spare headlamp always goes in the pack.

    And AAA and AA batteries as others have mentioned. I've gave them out numerous times.

    100% on “one more headlamp than you plan on using”, I’ve had batteries freeze a few times

    damn that sounds so much more core than the tiny little scissors in my buddy carries...

    pro tip if you don't have tp just break off some glop stop and shove it up the pooper for maximal glop stoppage

    But it freezes if you are doing laps. Kinda sucks to pee on your skis every time changing mode.

    I wasn't calling you a youngster, only that youngsters hadn't yet wiped their ass with sagebrush leaves and scrub oak.

    Thought of another one. Kick wax (if you have a long flattish section in/out).
