buy a cheap biner and leave it on your harness for these situations. if you feel you are pooping out and cant climb on, place the biner instead of a draw and leave it. you'll booty other peoples' biners in the future, it all works out. if you already placed a draw and climbed past it, then gassed out, you can either lower off and leave the draw, or down climb and try swapping the draw for the bail biner. if youre already that spent that you cant climb to the next bolt to place a bail biner, youre probably gonna be too gassed to swap a draw for a biner and with the mental aspect of a longer fall if you blow it, its just easier and less scary to leave the draw. simple. done. no mucking about trying to unclip a draw to replace it with a biner while gripped and freaking out worrying about falling. it happens, dont worry about it. they make draws and cheap biners everyday, you can get a replacement.
