Help, I trying to use the grapling hook to swing from one landing to the next in the manor, to shoot the rope where the statue is. But When I get the hook to connect I just hang there on the wall and cannot move. Is there a trick?

Sounds like you're meant to be doing a wall run and not a simple swing and jump. If you're new to the game and haven't looked through the manual, it's an easy mistake to make.

With Lara's feet against the wall, start pushing up and down on the joypad/keyboard (or left and right, depending on where you have the camera positioned). Lara should start to run in one direction, then turn back and start to run the opposite way. Keep timing your direction changes to coincide with Lara's and you'll be wall running in no time ;).

...and then, when Lara is at her peak of the wall run near the ledge you are trying to reach, press jump and Lara will grab the ledge.

Welcome to the forums and good luck! :D
