Grid Skyroot Ladder



Skyroot Ladders are used to descend up and down vertically. Skyroot Ladders will safely cushion a player's fall and prevent fall damage before hitting the ground. The narrow top surface does not count though, as this will incur falling damage if one isn't careful.

Holding the sneak key will allow a player to grab the ladder, stopping them from going down automatically and decreases mining speed. Any mobs can climb ladders like a player can.


  • Skyroot Ladders were not present in the original The Aether mod.
