The ladder is one of the most important tools in Animal Crossing: New Horizons because it allows you to climb higher places. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to unlock this item. Fortunately, you cannot miss it, because by completing some tasks, you will eventually get this item.

How Do I Get a Ladder in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

To get the ladder, you need to unlock the Nook’s Cranny store and start placing the residents on the island. Nook’s Cranny is the store where Timmy and Tommy can be found. To build it, you will need 30 pieces of each type of wood and 30 iron nuggets.

Once you choose a store location, it will be built the next day. At the same time, in the morning, Tom Nook will hear a phone call and learn that more and more residents are heading to the island. If Tom Nook is not answering calls in your game, wait until the island museum is fully built.

After this phone call, visit Nook at Resident Services, talk to him, and select the “What should I do” option. Nook will tell you that your task now is to build a bridge and build three houses. As soon as you build the bridge and the second apartment, Nook will call you and tell you to come to him for a ladder recipe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

To create a ladder, you need the following:

  • 4x wood
  • 4x hardwood
  • 4x softwood

After you create a ladder, you will find it in your inventory.

Please note that you do not need to make more than one ladder. This is one of those tools that does not break even after repeated use.

How Do I Climb the Rocks in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Once you make the ladder, you can climb the cliffs that are in the northern part of your island. To use the ladder, just take it, stand in front of the cliff, and press A.

You should use the ladder the same way when you want to go down. Unfortunately, you cannot jump down.
