"Come live with me and be my love, and we will all the pleasures prove, That valleys, groves, hills, and fields, Woods, or steepy mountain yields."
– Chistopher Marlowe, The Passionate Shepherd to His Love
Beyond the swamps and forest of New England the landscape is dominated by imposing heights. Hill Climbing allows you to ascend steeper slopes than before.
Throughout the New World there are areas where the elevation jumps sharply, creating a cliff. Standing beneath a cliff and clicking the top will cause you to Climb up, and standing at the top of a cliff and clicking the bottom will cause you to climb down. Selecting your Climbing Mode determines the speed you climb, how likely you are to fall, how much Blood damage you will take if you do fall, and how high you can free climb without equipping a Rope. Increasing Mines & Mountains will also reduce your risk of falling and the damage you take when you do fall.
NOTE: Climbing speed, risk, and damage are relative to the Afraid of Heights Climbing Mode.
