Some tips from ThisIsP2 in the comments on xthemusic's Let's Play of TRL

ThisIsP2 "Example: On the part where you jump on a button, a box falls off the ledge in front of you, you stand off the box, the ledge starts spinning, you then missed the jump. Now that is common, but. ... all u have to do is climb on the box tht fell then climb back up, its 100 times faster!"
That's at 1:22 in this video.

That's when releasing the water in Ghana. I've rage quit there rather than go all the way back around. There's a couple of ledges about the fallen box that let Lara climb back up. Just tested it.
(Later, after being chased by the giant boulder, Lara can climb back up if she falls into the water. The boulder knocks loose a rock that blocks the path up from the water. Speed-runners may already be aware of this path, as it's just barely possible to follow it even before it's been cleared.)
ThisIsP2 also wrote, "And another example: In Bolivia, when you had your guns out and you jump off and try to grapple and you dont. You climbed all the way back up. BUT, you dont have to, because when you jump towards the grapple spot, the ledge you were previously on has fallen. All you must do is turn around and climb up the fallen floor! Just thought i might give you those tips. (GOOD VIDEOS THOUGH)"
That's from the first grapple swing in the first level of Bolivia. I could have used that before, too.
ThisIsP2 wrote, "ANOTHER TOMB RAIDER LEGEND TIP: Lara can pull enemies toward her with her grapple. Aim at the enemy and press the grapple button. This can also be used to pull enemies off ledges or swipe their gun away."
I may start trying that. Wonder if it works on Rutland?
