Using the pickaxe to scale cliffs
A feature notably missing from a game featuring spelunking and ascending mountain faces is the ability to climb. In addition to needing a rope in Minecraft, how perfectly fitting would it be to be able to ascend cliffs by scaling the walls with a pickaxe, rope, and hook? Perhaps an enchantment could be applied to enable cliff scaling, or just normal or double durability loss while scaling. This would also be a great opportunity to expand on the Caves & Cliffs update by adding sheer dropoffs and vertical cliff faces to encourage players to climb.
I've always thought that climbing should be inherently a feature of Minecraft, as the current method of breaking blocks and using ladders or water buckets to tackle climbing is insufficient.
Please consider this idea! It would fit so perfectly into vanilla Minecraft.
As always, I love the frequent, exciting updates added to Minecraft. Keep improving and making this game the best of all time!
