Climbing Gloves are accessories that can be purchased in certain shops. They can also occasionally be found in crates or received from Kali after making sacrifices.


Climbing gloves allow you to grab onto any type of wall and climb up them or abseil down them as if it were a ledge. This allows you to reduce or prevent fall damage, lets you grab onto ledges one block higher than normal, and climb up vertical walls to reach some areas that would normally need a rope to access.

However, even with climbing gloves, there are several situations where you may need to use a rope, such as climbing up overhanging ledges or descending caverns that have no walls for you to cling to, such as in the Ice Caves.

Climbing Gloves can be equipped at the same time as the Pitcher's Mitt and work especially well when used with Spring Shoes and a cape.

They are made virtually redundant with a jetpack, but will still help with managing fall damage and conserving jetpack flight time.

There are a few situations where they can be disadvantageous, e.g. slipping through a 1 block gap between Tiki Traps. Be advised that holding down will not prevent you from grabbing onto blocks.


There is a typo in the journal entry for this item in-game. The description reads:

They protect your hands and let you to cling to even the most slippery of walls.
It should either read "let you cling to" or "allow you to cling to".
