In summer take enough water for the complete climb because you won't find it the hole route. Also wear a cap and bring a shell jacket in order to protect yourself from a possible downpour. In winter and early spring wear warm clothes, take crampons and ice axe. The compass, map and altimeter could also be advisable anytime of the year.
