Go Up and Down Cliffs

ACNH - Use the Ladder
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.
