As peculiar as this sounds, scaling heights is something that can prove to be a bit of a challenge in Minecraft. The game doesn’t really have any properly implemented climbing system, so players are left jumping from one block to another in order to get up to places that are high up. There are various mods out there that aid players in climbing but most of them can be a tad bit impractical and over the top at times. If you don’t want to use these mods to scale heights and want more realistic ways to climb upwards, then the Literal Ascension mod should be right up your alley.
The Literal Ascension mod basically implements a whole bunch of items that players can utilize to climb up to heights in Minecraft. The mod features a step ladder that you can carry around wherever you go and then setup whenever you need to climb a vertical obstacle, carving tools that you can utilize to make your environments climbable by creating notches in wood and stone and even a climbing rope that you can use to scale up heights. The climbing rope can also be used from above to descend safely into places that are deep underground, and this can help save you from a lot of fall damage.
The best part about the Literal Ascension mod is that all its items are quite easy to craft. You can put together the ladder with a few blocks of wood, the carving tools can be created with some stone and the ingredients for the climbing rope are fairly common as well. All things considered, the Literal Ascension mod gives players a sensible and straightforward way to scale up heights and reach places that they normally wouldn’t be able to reach.
