This guide will show you how to climb over walls and ledges in Monster Hunter Rise (MHR). See how to go over small ledges, ivy walls, how to perform a Wall Run after using a Wiredash, skills, and items to support Wall Running.

How to Climb Walls

In Monster Hunter: Rise, there are several ways in which walls or steep terrain can be climbed. This depends on the wall's height and whether it has ivy or not.

Climbing walls via Wall Running will naturally deplete stamina. It is recommended that you perform a Wiredash with Wirebugs to efficiently scale the wall.

Climbing Normal Walls

Climb Ledges.gif

In a hunt, walls can be climbed relatively pain free by simply sprinting towards the wall. As long as your buttons are held down, you will start climbing them.

Short walls or steep terrain, such as the one shown above, can easily be climbed over without costing too much stamina. Running out of stamina while Wall Running will cause you to drop from the wall.

Scaling Ivy Walls

Climbing Ivy Walls

Walls which have Ivy (or any similar climbing objects such as vines and ropes) are useful for getting up to higher areas as they allow you to hang on them during the climb. Walking in the direction of the ivy wall will lead your character to grab onto it.

After grabbing it, hold forward to climb upward, while left and right can be used to adjust your positioning. Additionally, you can hold the sprint button to climb much faster than normal, although it will use stamina.

Keep in mind that ivy walls can be scaled with palamutes as well, and as mentioned above, you can hold down the sprint button while doing so to climb even faster.

Use Wiredash for High Walls

Wirebug controls on PC change depending on whether the weapon type you are using ranged or not.

For taller walls that have no vines on them, you will need to make use of a Wiredash in order to climb them.

To do so, aim your Wirebug and fire it at the spot you are aiming at. After latching on to the wall, hold down the sprint button to initiate Wall Runnnig, which will allow you to reach the top.

Aim Your Wiredash Carefully

Wall Running can only continue until your Stamina is exhausted, so it is important that you aim your reticle as close to the top ledge of the wall as possible, as it will be easier to do a wall run to reach the top.

If your stamina runs out before you reach the edge, you will jump off, at which point you can initiate a second wiredash and finish the climb if you are quick enough.

How to Improve Climbing Stamina

Wall Running Skills

Skills Explanation
Wall Running Reduces stamina consumption when wall running. At Lv. 3, increases attack power when you initiate a wall run.
Wall-Runner (Boost) Wirebug Gauge recovers faster while wall running.
Marathon Runner Slows down stamina depletion for actions which continuously drain stamina (such as dashing). This stacks with Wall Running.

Listed above are skills that are often used for managing stamina while Wall Running (this includes climbing ivy, vines, and ropes). These can be used to your advantage during a hunt!

There are skills that provide temporary infinite stamina (such as Furious and Heaven-Sent), which halt stamina use during climbs. However, they are not usually used for scaling terrain and are better suited for combat.

Also, look out for stamina use reduction skills like Latent Power and hunting horn Melodies that have situational use in helping with wall scaling.
