Clearly and attractively filmed in locations around Snowdonia, Gogarth, Malham and the Peak, the narrative belts along at a brisk pace. Sander's and Long's ropeside manner is exemplary... no pretentious soliloquising or patronising dumbing down. Self Rescue takes full advantage of the utility of the DVD format over print media when explaining rope tricks such as bypassing a knot on an abseil or forming a klemheist prusik.
