Rock climbing First-Aid kit

Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, yadda-yadda-yadda. Simply having a first-aid kit in your pack is neither going to keep you safe, nor magically save somebody’s life if you have no idea how to use it.

First of all, your kit should be appropriate for your level of training and for the environment you’re going to find yourself in.
