The climbing rope can be attached to certain buildings to allow climbing above or below certain areas. They were added to the game in update v0.10 to caves, though they were made buildable in update v0.13 of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The climbing rope can be found at the utility structures section of the survival guide, which can be used to climb up buildings that it is attached to.

The climbing rope can also be found in most caves, they often act as entrances to caves aswell. They operate is the exact same fashion though they cannot be removed.

To use a climbing rope, press E at the bottom of the rope. Occasionally, the rope will be poking through the floor, the player may have to crouch and aim into the ground to see the climb icon. If the player holds the SHIFT key while going up or down the rope, they will be able to utlitise it faster. Holding shift whilst going down will cause the player to slide down the rope at a much faster pace. If they hold shift while going up, they will climb it faster but they will use more stamina. The following buildings have certain amount of anchors that the climbing rope or tree bridge can attach to: Gazebo (1), Log Cabin (2), Platform (3), Tree Platform (4), Cliff Side Platform (5), Simple Stairs (6) and Basic Wall (7)

Glitches[edit | edit source]

  • When climbing down a rope (if you're entering a cave wait for the zone to load) press interact to let go of the rope, and spam interact as you fall. You should grab the rope again at the bottom before you hit the ground, negating any fall damage while descending even the longest ropes in a second or two.

Update history[edit | edit source]

Version Changes
v1.0 Fixed climbing a rope attached to a structure that was partially broken causing rope animation to play in wrong position on rope
v0.72 Fixed fast climbing ropes not working with toggle sprint enabled

Slightly reduced distance that players can grab climbing ropes

Fixed players able to climb past the bottom end of custom ropes

Fixed players sometimes getting put back on the surface when climbing down into cave rope entrances

v0.61 Fixed placing climbing rope sometimes not responding
v0.58b Fixed issues where players could end up in sky when climbing ropes
v0.58 Players can no longer climb through each other when climbing ropes
v0.55b Fixed issues with hot key items being visible whilst swimming or climbing ropes
v0.55 Frost damage will no longer occur while player is jumping or actively climbing a rope
v0.51 Fixed a case of player not properly climbing rope if there was something around the bottom trigger (like a cliff or bumpy terrain)
v0.50 Players now smoothly move into position when climbing onto a rope
v0.44 New casting based anchoring for single anchor structures (currently climbing ropes only), grabs anchor in view near center of screen instead of within range of ghost, thus requiring less accuracy in aiming and being a lot easier to lock with anchors
v0.43 It is no longer possible to be brought under terrain by the climbing down top of rope animation.

It is no longer possible to use the top rope trigger to initiate rope climbing from below it, bottom trigger should be used instead. This prevents playing the climbing down rope animation when not effectively trying to climb down

v0.38 Burning weapons are now put out and can be relit for remaining burn duration when stashed (i.e. when climbing rope)
v0.26 Fixed rope mesh vanishing whilst climbing if player was on low draw distance setting

v0.25 Fixed bug where you could open survival book whilst climbing rope
v0.21c Fixed bug where climbing down rope player hands would be offset
v0.21 (multiplayer) Fixed parts of players own heads visible at some angles, such as climbing down rope or moving camera fast to one side
v0.18c Fixed rope climbing not using player input mapping
v0.18 New neon climbing rope texture

Fixed camera jumping to a random angle when exiting sled/rope climbing

Fixed some bugs with rope climbing hands not being aligned correctly

(multiplayer) Player will not get stuck sideways when climbing ropes

v0.16 Fixed bug where climbing rope for first time would sometimes cause it to release right after climbing
v0.13 Added extra checks to stop player falling through world when climbing ropes

(audio)rope climbing sound effects added

Fixed issues where after climbing rope, it would slightly reposition player making it very easy to fall back into hole or off ledge

v0.13 (single player only)New buildable item: Climbing Rope (needs to be hooked to a single Structure Anchor, a minimum distance with floor is required)
v0.11 Fixed bug where player would have issues climbing rope if cold and shaking
v0.10 Climbing system! Player can now climb rope
