Ladders are blocks used for climbing vertically. They can be jumped onto, and must not have any gaps between ladders. Each ladder has a small hitbox, so it is possible to stand on top of them.
When sneaking on a ladder, the player will immediately stop descending, although it is still possible to ascend. The mining speed of the player will decrease on a ladder; this stacks with the mining speed lost while sneaking.
