CMC Rescue Escape Artist Descender



Hands-free edge transition and a controllable descent— designed for the most extreme conditions. 

The Escape Artist offers what most other escape devices do not. This compact, lightweight descender lays out the rope smoothly and then locks when loaded, allowing both hands to be used to negotiate the exit. Squeezing the lever gives the user control of the descent rate. The Escape Artist's all metal construction and minimum number of parts provides durability and reliable performance. The Escape Artist is intended to be pre-rigged on the escape line, and kept ready for immediate use. Available in Red.
