NASA SpaceX Lunar Elevator of Death!

The NASA SpaceX Human Landing System (HLS) for lunar moon landings requires astronauts to descend to the lunar surface on an elevator over one hundred feet high. This is their lifeline to the habitat that will keep them alive. What if the elevator breaks? How will the astronauts get back into the lander and survive?
