ExcitableBoy's list is just about perfect for the targets he named (rarely will two climbers carry *exactly* the same stuff, but this is close), but there's stuff on the list that is a recipe for disaster if you think buying it will get you safely up and down a mountain. Ice axe, pulleys, prussiks - if you don't know how to use them, you're better off staying away from routes that might call on you to do so. If you know how to use them, you know why and when you need them: a gear list is unnecessary.
Know your capabilities and choose your destinations accordingly.
