re end of rope knots for rappels - I have found & seen lots of fig 8s, both in the single strand & on a bight (& overhands on bight), coming undone on long rappels over the years. I stopped using them a long time ago because of this and switched to tying triple fisherman's style stopper knots in each end & have found these to be much more reliable (at least in terms of still being there when I started organising the next rappel- thankfully I still haven't slammed into them).

I reckon that, as a recreational crag climber, putting knots in the ends of abseil ropes (unless you can see both strands lying on the ground) & loading your abseil system before detaching from the anchor are the two actions/tests/checks/habits most likely to save your life.

I also reckon that the pitch under the bottom station, Antiques Road Show, is excellent.
