ock Climbing is a new physical skill and gameplay feature in The Sims 4: Snowy Escape. Sims can test their inner adventurer by honing this skill and using it to explore various mountains and cliff faces in Winterworld. However, rock climbing must be slow and steady, as death can result if Sims are too hasty.
There are many ways to practice rock climbing, and once they’re ready, Sims can take part in mountaineering excursions. However, before attempting it, or any other mountain, they must be well prepared. As such, this guide contains everything you need to know about rock climbing in The Sims 4: Snow Escape, including how to practice, where to buy gear, and all the climbing spots available.
increase climbing skills
Like all other primary skills, the Climbing skill has ten possible levels. The easiest way to improve your climbing skills is by rock climbing on Mount Komorebi near the start of the ski and snowboard lessons on the gondola. Players can do this with or without gear, but they run the risk of their Sims falling and being injured. Sims must be at least level 1 in Rock Climbing to purchase gear. Gear can be purchased on the computer under the “Order.” menu for 450 Simoleons and equips once in Sims’ inventory. Gear does wear out, so it will eventually break and Sims will have to buy another set while practicing their climbing skills.
If players want to give their Sims a less hands-on introduction, bookshelves can be used to purchase rock climbing tips books. Alternatively, if the player owns The Sims 4: Fitness Stuff pack, they can purchase the Indoor Climbing Wall in Build/Buy and use it to improve their skills.

Visit the climbing wall at Mt. Komorebi
Once Sims have a high enough Rock Climbing Skill, they can explore the various climbs on Mount Komorebi. The starting wall is near Bunny Slopes and rental properties. The middle wall is located on the ski and snowboard slope leading to the top of Komorebi. Players will know they are in the right place when they see a flat and slightly darkened cliff face, which lights up when hovering over it. Walls taller than that can only be found on mountaineering excursions.
Before attempting to climb, make sure Sims have a high need. Maintaining a focused mind is also an excellent way to ensure success. If Sims attempt to climb a wall without a high enough skill level or proper preparation, they may fall; if the wall is medium or taller, there is a small chance of a fall that could kill them. Another good idea is to check climbing conditions by clicking on climbing walls, especially during snowstorms. If it is not safe, Sims should hold off on trying until the weather clears.
