First line yourself up with the rope. Then jump forward and press Ctrl to grab onto it. Use to climb up the rope and to slide down the rope.
You'll get your best swing when you're at the bottom of the rope, but be careful not to get swinging too much, as Lara can get pretty high and take some damage when you make your jump and land.
To get swinging, hold down the Sprint Key, ?. When you've reached a height you like, press Alt to jump. Just stay on the safe side, never let go of Ctrl.
