How to get the permanent ladder DIY recipe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The Nook Stop can't help you with this one.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, when it came to getting up a cliff before the 2.0 free update, there were three ways: Using an incline, using a Mario pipe, or using a manual ladder. After the 2.0 free update, that changed.

There are now two more ways to get up those pesky cliffs: vines and permanent ladders. Here we will be covering how to get the DIY for a permanent ladder, so you can build your own way up a cliff.

Unlike many of the items added, the DIY is not for purchase via Nook Miles at the Nook Shop and instead is a new item available at Nook’s Cranny. There is no announcement from Timmy and Tommy that anything new in the shop, and it is next to all of the other DIYs that have ever been unlocked, so you will have to look closely.

The item is labeled “Ladder Set-Up Kit Recipe” and costs 2,000 bells. Once you have purchased it and learned the DIY, go to any workbench to build a permanent ladder (called “Wooden ladder set-up kit”) with it. You will need 1 normal ladder and 5 wood to craft it.
