Default tree stand esacpe rope ladder

any of you guys ever make/buy/use emergency escape rope/prusik ladders for your climbing tree stands?? possibly with with 550 cord??
not to catch your weight if you fell. the safety harness will hopefully do that. just as a back up way down, an emergency exit.
do any of you leave rope ladders on your climbers or anything like that???

is there something obvious that im missing??? it seems like something like that would be standard issue with new climbing tree stands, you should get one 30 foot "free emergency exit" with the "free catch harness" they give you.

one more thing and i'll stop... whats with including catch harnesses with brand name, brand new, tree stands that cut blood flow and kill you just as dead as the fall would??? all "free catch harnesses" should be vest style, you can hang in one of those till you die of thirst. it's like having a seat belt that kills you 6 hours after you survive wrecking the car...
