Description[ | ]

Iron Ladders are craft-able items. They are much more sturdy than Wooden Ladders.

To use, simply walk or jump towards the Iron Ladder and continue walking forward to climb. While on the ladder, you can move forward or backward depending on the direction you're facing. For example, you can "climb" a ladder by looking up and pressing the forward-movement key, or by looking down and pressing the backward-movement key.

Repairing[ | ]

To repair Iron Ladders, use a repair tool. Repair costs 3x Forged Iron.

Notes[ | ]

  • If destroyed, it gives you 1 to 2 Iron.
  • Ladders can easily be extended while climbing them, by placing additional Iron Ladders as you ascend or descend.
  • Falls from any height can be stopped without injury by grabbing a ladder. This can be done by using your limited horizontal mobility during the fall to "press against" any surface with a ladder. The ladder needs to be long enough and high enough above the ground to stop your fall before you touch any part of the ground. (A very rough estimate is, a minimum three-block-long vertical ladder, running from three to six blocks above the ground...though this varies based on the fall distance.)
  • The weaker counter-part to the Iron Ladder is the Wooden Ladder.
  • You should "loot" a Iron Ladder from the top rung down. Iron Ladders usually collapse if the lower rungs are removed first.
  • As of A6, Zombies can and will climb ladders in order to get to the player.
  • As of A13 (possibly earlier), you can place ladders against a stack of blocks, then remove the blocks, leaving the still-climbable ladder in midair.
  • You should avoid placing a ladder where the top rung will be against the side wall of a Ramp Frame. You can't climb off the ladder unless you extend it onto the side wall; and even then, climbing on and off the ladder is "touchy" and difficult.
