Crampons are footwear which, when worn, improve the wearer's climbing skill. They comprise a thick leather sole, into which several spikes have been set, allowing greater grip.

They weigh 6/9 lb, and cannot be worn with either climbing shoes or climbing boots.


Wearing climbing objects changes several bonuses, but the amount of the changes seem to vary based on stats.

Climbing shoes provide the following boosts and penalties to a player's climbing bonuses when worn:

Skill Change type Bonus change
adventuring.movement.climbing.tree raise 8 + floor( (dexterity + strength)/2 )
adventuring.movement.climbing.rock raise 25 + floor( (dexterity + strength)/2 )
covert.stealth.inside drop floor(dexterity / 3) - 25
covert.stealth.outside drop floor(dexterity / 3) - 25
covert.hiding.person drop floor(dexterity / 3) - 25

The stats used to calculate the bonus changes are capped by your unmodified stats, i.e. only overall negative stat effects are taken into account.


Crampons may be found in the abandoned shack in Lancre Town.
