Climbing irons were leg attachments used to make climbing wooden surfaces easier.[1]


Climbing irons were metal rods that attached to the lower leg. A barbed ankle spike could be forced into a tree or wooden structure while climbing to ensure a steady platform for the feet. Many rogues used these to scale wooden building in cities.[1]

The drawback of using climbing irons is that the wearers movement speed while on flat land was reduced by roughly 1/4.[1]
