The Climbing Claws are an accessory that lets players partially "stick" to the sides of blocks, slowly sliding down them when moving against them in midair. Jumps can also be performed off the sides of blocks. By repeatedly sticking and jumping, vertical blocks can be scaled. When sliding down, the slide speed can be accelerated using the ▼ Down key. Climbing Claws can be found in surface chests (including Water Chests) and they also have a 0.44*1/225 (0.44%) chance of being found in Wooden Crates and Pearlwood Crates. Its availability very early in the game makes it a useful accessory for mobility, as it allows the player to slowly but surely climb up some walls without needing Rope.

Climbing Claws function identically to the Shoe Spikes, but are found in different locations. When both Climbing Claws and Shoe Spikes are equipped, the wearer remains completely "stuck" at a fixed point when moving against the sides of blocks, and may slide down with the ▼ Down key. This effect can also be achieved using a single accessory if the Climbing Claws and Shoe Spikes are combined into the Tiger Climbing Gear at a Tinkerer's Workshop.
