I’m not in any way qualified to give advice here, but I can tell you what I do. The minimum I bring is good cloth tape (1000 purposes), steri-strips (light and effective), a few does of Naproxen (I prefer to ibuprofen and fewer tabs means less weight!) and a decent supply of the strongest pain killer I can get my hands on. On top of that I bring a emergency blanket (shock is very real) if I don’t have a sleeping bag. Benadryl is a good idea if there are known allergies or with people I don’t know. The rest is situational. Hope that helps. Hope you don’t need it!
I’m getting my packing list ready for the Liberty Ridge and trying to figure out what to pack in terms of fist aid. I tend to over pack my first aid kits, so I’m trying not to do that.
I found this online: http://www.traditionalmountaineering.org/Firstaid.pdf but it seems like more than what I’d need.
I was figuring I’d bring tape, drugs (advil, excedrine migraine, benadryl), maybe moleskin, gauze, alcohol swabs, and some various sized bandaids, and a tensor wrap.
What do people bring?
