Another way of acquiring the ladder is through multiplayer. Simply visit your friend's island and have them craft the ladder for you, or purchase the DIY from their store. You might need to Best Friends first though. This is an effective way getting the ladder as soon as possible.

To use the Ladder, you'll need to switch to the Ladder Tool after obtaining it, go up to a cliff, and press the A Button to either climb it or descend it.

The Ladder will never break, so you won't be left stranded on top of a cliff, but admittedly, having to switch to the Ladder every time to go up and down cliffs can be a hassle.
