Character mistake: As Bond offers Ms. Brink to help her if she helps them, she answers "Ja, mein Herr Bond" meaning, "Yes, Mister Bond." It should simply be "Ja, Herr Bond." The way she says it would roughly translate to "Yes, my Lord Bond."
Continuity mistake: Bond fixes the end of his rope with a spring-loaded camming device (which is unsuitable for lose, porous rock by the way). When Apostis tries to dislodge him, the end loop of the rope is fixed to a piton - it has to be, because SLCDs literally cannot be knocked out of the rock.
Revealing mistake: As Bond prepares to drop Blofeld into the smoke stack, you can see that the cervical collar isn't put on correctly, the actor can still move his head. The intention of a cervical collar is to take all strain off the spine and neck muscles and prevent any movement that could cause damage to the spinal cord. To work, a stiff neck must be fixed so the neck is completely immobilized and slightly extended. However, wearing a cervical collar is very uncomfortable to the wearer, so they probably used a slightly lower one and didn't fully tighten it.
