If your bike has three sprockets at the front, the smallest innermost one is usually referred to as the granny gear, or possibly the bailout gear. If you're really tired, or the slope is really steep the granny gear is your last option. If you're too tired to push the granny gear(the easiset one) then your only remaining choice is to get off and walk.
