This isn't how the problem is done, in my view. The route as I've always seen it does roughly half of the standard traverse, then presses out a tough mantel (notice the spelling-) at a divot/seam.

Pretty tough, I watched a buddy do it and gave it a try but felt heinous to me. Probably a lot easier if you just do a one-move mantel and hop down...

I start the mantel just to the left of the pic, in the divot seam thing. It doesnt make it harder or easier, and the "true line" isnt straight forward.
