/ Rack for Ogwen
Medium to large wires. Size 1-3 might get little use. And the odd hex.
And as you climb think of the gear the first ascentionists had at their disposal.......
Normal is relative. You use more nuts and of generally larger, less cams that the peak (as andy pointed out). You need double the quickdraws/belay crabs. You will use more larger slings and possibly a cordelette if that's your thing. Hexes are actually of some use. So unless you set off on peak routes with 15 quickdraws, there can be some differences. Stop being an arse.
A single set of nuts is rarely enough for multi-pitch routes, I'd double-up in at least the middle sizes (3-8).
But as you say, you climb always with multi pitch gear. I think the portaledge at stanage was a little over the top though. I've taken 15 for 160 feet of climbing before, with some making up the belay but as grit is only 20 feet long I assume you solo everything.
and the Colemans, did anyone remember the Colemans?
I always find Moacs do very nicely in Welsh boiler plate slabs.
And a porter to carry your food. And a boy to carry the porters food. The boy can carry his own food.
