    There’s a good mountain about 3 hours away from where I live, and my goal is to climb it. I’ve done smaller 1 and 2 day hikes before, but nothing of this caliber. I’m planning on bringing a few more experienced climbers with me, but I want to know of things I should take along with me. I want to prepare for everything, and don’t want to miss something important. I’ve got the basic gear – backpack, sleeping equipment, first aid kit – but I want some disaster preparedness tips, in case something were to happen. What should I bring along with me, “just in case?”

    Are you climbing the mountain or hiking up it. There's a huge difference.
