I usually carry chocolate and/or peanut M&M's, a couple of granola bars, nuts, and a few Gu packets for long winter days. Add something with calories to water and I'm good to go. I usually avoid taking anything I can't eat while moving, especially if I'm solo, since I don't like taking many breaks. On technical climbs, this also means I can easily eat at the belay.
Hmm, I'm carrying a thermos to the summit of Vinson in two weeks and have always carried on on Denali, Shasta, Aconcagua etc... Too heavy? Really ?
