Perhaps unsurprisingly, you're going to need a ladder for climbing.
How To Get A Ladder In Animal Crossing: New Horizons
You'll need to invite three islanders to your new home to unlock the ladder recipe – you can find our guide for that here.
Thankfully, the ladder doesn't take a lot of materials to build:
- Wood (4)
- Hardwood (4)
- Softwood (4)
Simply hack some trees for the materials, then build your ladder.
Once it's equipped, head to a cliff and place your ladder so that you can climb up.
