I've used something very similar to that for the past 28 years in the
fire service. http://www.duosafety.com/roof.html
We simply call it a roof ladder or hook ladder. When we're ventilating
a pitched roof to remove super-heated fire gases from the structure
below, we're usually standing with one of our feet planted between the
rungs while saw operations are going on.
Your choices are thus: If the roof collapses, perform the above
described act and bust your walnuts - or don't and fall through it!
