Climbstone (natural rock ladders)
Similar to how the jungle has vines, I believe caves and cliffs needs to have a new traversal block. Everything from here on out is my opinion on how that should be done. First I looked at how old vines work and noticed they were less reliable than ladders, I would like to continue that same pattern in all naturally occurring climbable’s. for this reason I would make it so that you could “Lose your grip“ causing you to fall. It would be preceded by a particle animation and could be prevented by stopping and “getting your grip back”. The chance of this happening is tied to the availability of your hands. Two hands free And you only lose your grip every 16 blocks or so. One hand occupied And you’ll lose your grip every 8 or so blocks. Two hands occupied makes it almost impossible to go more than two blocks Without Losing your grip. (Other than duel wielding this also includes bows and crossbows) Stopping allows you to do anything you need and resets the counter rewarding thoughtful/cautious players Then I would add an enchantment call it climbing, it could apply to picks or hoes And would have the inverse effect One pick with climbing on it would Increase the distance before losing your grip to ~24 or cancel out having something else in your freehand. Two picks would make it completely reliable and make it even faster than a ladder. This block could be found on the sides of steep mountains or the insides of large caves as large streaks either going up and down or side to side
