  • Crafting Table
  • Seven Sticks

Place the sticks in the crafting table like in the image provided above. This will generate three ladders each time you use this recipe. You will likely need more ladders than this, so be prepared to use several sticks to create enough ladders.

Ladders are an easy way to get up and down, especially when space is tight and you don't want to build stairs. However, you can be knocked off ladders, so be careful when climbing up and down. The last thing you want is a skeleton archer shooting you while you're on a ladder.
