A technique used in climbing. You places your hands palm down on a ledge and attempt to get your weight over your hands. Then you push down raising your lower body until you can place a foot onto the ledge.

The name comes from the shelf over the fireplace as this is the usual height above the feet for a ledge that you would attempt to mantleshelf up onto.
