This Common Skill allows the user to scale heights and move up and down vertical surfaces.

Movement, No LoF, No Roll.
  • The user's base must be in contact with a vertical surface.
  • While Climbing the user's base must be fully in contact with the surface over which he is moving.
  • Troopers cannot Move through spaces narrower than their base.
  • The user may climb vertically up to the first value of his MOV Attribute in inches.
  • Climbing does not require a Roll.
  • As long as the user is holding on to a vertical surface, he cannot declare any Skills other than Climb.
  • Troopers who are Climbing or holding on to a vertical surface cannot benefit from Partial Cover MODs.
  • Troops can never be in the Prone state while they Climb or hold on to a vertical surface.
  • For visualization purposes, troopers using the Climb Skill move with the underside of their bases in contact with the vertical surface.
  • Climb allows only movement up or down vertical surfaces; this means troopers cannot use their excess Climbing movement to keep moving on a horizontal surface once they are done climbing. Once the trooper reaches a level surface, his movement ends for that Order (see diagram).
  • Climbing movement must follow the General Movement rules as well as the Moving and measuring sidebar, both of which are explained in the Move Common Skill rules.
Motorcycles and Vehicles can never Climb.
A figure in the Reactive Turn who is holding onto a vertical surface cannot ARO. The reason for this is that, while on a vertical surface, the only available Skill is Climb, and Climb is an Entire Order that cannot be used in Reactive Turn.

Q: When can a trooper activate or cancel Prone state?
A: Prone state can be activated or cancelled by declaring the Move Short Movement Skill, or where stated in the rules. For example, you cannot activate or cancel Prone state by declaring Cautious Movement or Jump, because they are not the Move Short Movement Skill.
