Climbing high grounds in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be a boring thing to do. Moreover, Link will burn up some stamina while doing so.

Throughout the game, players are required to climb a lot of vertical spaces for completing several tasks and activities. Climbing can be a tough activity to do as it takes up stamina, and also might sometime make Link slip through the slopes due to rain. The Ascend ability will further help Link escape cages and prisons whenever he gets caught up in one.
