I was climbing Diagonal at combat rock after work and thought I totally was gonna booty a bd c4 #1. When I got to the piece it was mega stuck and it look liked it was smashed with a tire iron, and someone used a screwdriver to try to pry it out. This caused the outer lobes to bend almost 90 degrees. Boy did we have a laugh when we saw that shit. No picture, but it made me think of starting a thread dedicated to screwed up gear.

Every fixed link cam I have ever seen has looked like someone tried to use it as a piton

Yep, I recall an old #2 original solid stem Friend bashed,smashed and prodded at in order to gain booty. It was jammed hopelessly downward into a vertical crack from above, left as a top rope anchor at Devils Lake years ago. Tried to retrieve it for years too, but just saw it get more bashed and bent out of shape over time.

I will get pictures the next time I head out to Cerberus in zion but there are a lot of stuck link cams out there that are hammered and a really hilariously mangeled ustem camalot. The links are Funny as they are the gold two size crammed into a .5. I do not remember the last time I tried to protect ring locks with a two...

Broke carabiner on Waverly Waster

Not a cam, but still gear. Broke this carabiner on Waverly Waster at Looking Glass. The carabiner was attached to a fixed cable draw in the middle of the crux traverse. I fell from near the anchors, broke the biner and continued the pendulum to the next piece at the beginning of the traverse about 20' to the left. The swing was very wild and took several pendulum's before I could touch the wall without twirling. Luckily the wall is just slightly overhanging that I didn't clip anything in the fall. The cable draw was later fixed by rotating it 90 degrees to avoid an incident like this again. Exciting to say the least.

Me at the summit of Inner Course (5.4) in the Outlets.  Long, lovely, mellow route.  Well protected even.  My favorite lead from the trip.

Is this mangled enough for ya'?

"Booty" nut cleaned off of the last pitch of Wrist in the Gunks.

anybody have pics of those biners they left in front of Miguels last year? The ones almost worn through by sand filled corrosive ropes going over the quickdraw lower biner? They were razor sharp, besides worn over half way through the body of the carabiner. Awesome to see and feel that sharp edge.

Anyone seen the gear from 2010 at the Jenny Lake Ranger Station...it's so "mutilated" I don't think it's aluminum anymore.

placed my totem behind a large flake. Didn't think it would flex, if I fell.

This is why you don't set cams behind flakes

Still good? Sure - Put it on your Indian Creek rack.

This was one of several fixed cams on 'Handcracker Direct'.
I hammered and hack-sawed it out.
