Petzl EXO Self-Rescue System

We went climbing this past weekend and I wanted to peek around at gear that's out there and came across the Petzl EXO self-rescue system. The video below explains how it works. Developed with the FDNY, Petzl adapted their climbing and workman tech with the high-temperature and ease-of-deployment requirements of firefighters. The result is a neat kit of parts that will save a firefighter's life.
