Climbing falls can be terrifying, especially when your gear is marginal, you're runout, or the rock is suspect. For our next Re-Gram, we're looking for the gear that saved your bacon: the cams that held 50-footers, the micro-nuts that stayed when everything else zipper out, and anything else that saved your day (and possibly your life).

Email with a high-res photo and a couple sentences describing what happened. We'll feature our favorites in an upcoming issue of our print edition.
