    This Achievement can be obtained in the Geothermal Valley next to the Ridgeline Base Camp which can be accessed either before or after exiting the Archives mission.

    To the right of the Camp then is a ramp that will be used to perform the swan dive. Back away from the ramp and click cn_LS in to sprint towards the ramp, as soon as you hit the edge hit cn_A and then quickly tap cn_LT to perform the correct dive.

    This might take a few attempts because of timing but if you fail simply reload back to the Camp and try again.

    Iggsy81Can anyone explain how far into the story you need to be to access this area? For me it's blocked off with spikes and im worried i've missed the base camp and now it's just locked away..

    This can be attained in Geothermal Valley closest to the Ridgeline Base Camp which can be accessed after progressing to this area during the story. This base camp is located at the top of a waterfall and just off to the side you'll notice a wooden platform that pokes out of the side of the cliff edge.

    Get a running start (cn_RSc) towards the platform, jump (cn_A) once you reach the end, and quickly enter the swan dive by pressing cn_LT. If done with the correct timing, Lara will enter the swan dive downwards and unlock the achievement upon hitting the water.

    If you fail, climb out of the water, ascend the hill and try again.

    I am not looking for credit with this, just taking it out of the comments and making it more accessible as a solution because it helped me complete an in game challenge!

    Had a lot of trouble this, but got it by sprinting off the small edge of the cliffside beside it on the right, not the actual platform. Then it worked first time!
    I struggled with the first jump and eventually got it on my 10 or 11th attempt, I then found DAGGERO97's comment and I managed to swan dive the other 3 jumps (for the challenge High Diving in the Geothermal Valley) on my first attempts - I actually jumped off to the left of the platforms!
    Showing both comments.
    CraziestSockWow seriously just spent 45 minutes jumping off the platform with no luck and the first time I tried this it worked. So thank you!

    Y2JoolzI also got this first time after trying the platform.

    This is not a guide, but help to get the game mechanic to work. I seen a lot of people give advice but this is what worked for me.

    I struggled performing a swan dive. What I found, at least for the XBOX, was to jumpcn_A and them move the left stick cn_LSu forward and at the same time press the cn_B button. Also I did not run and this worked every time for me.

    Good Luck

    To perform a swan dive press (on a dualshock 4 controller) the X button, then the circle button (on the xbox controller) the A button, then the B button. My video looks like the following:


    Only attempt this by the ridgeline base camp because it has to be 2.5+ seconds.

    Wouldn't it be like summer olympic related thing? If Lara Croft were to participate in the summer olympics, she'd win a gold medal.
