Description[edit | edit source]
A Wooden Ladder is a craftable item. It can also be "looted" by hitting an existing Wooden Ladder with a Fireaxe until it disappears and a Wooden Ladder is added to your inventory.
To use, simply walk or jump towards the Wooden 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.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Ladders can easily be extended while climbing them, by placing additional Wooden 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.)
- As of A15 (possibly earlier), placing a ladder in a 1 block wide mine shaft is impossible due to a quirk in how the block placement and earth smoothing algorithms. Accordingly, it is recommended to dig mineshafts either 3 blocks wide (providing enough room for you to place a ladder), or 2 blocks wide with wood frames in one column (to provide a surface for the ladder).
- The stronger counter-part to the Wooden Ladder is the Metal Ladder.
- Despite its appearance while being "looted" with a fireaxe, the Wooden Ladder added to your inventory will have no damage.
- You should "loot" a Wooden Ladder from the top rung down. Wooden 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.
