Level 5 (BS The Legend of Zelda MAP1)

Allows Link to cross holes or rivers[1]


The Stepladder[2], or Ladder[1], is an item from The Legend of Zelda and BS The Legend of Zelda.

The Legend of Zelda

Sprite of the Stepladder

The Stepladder is found in the fourth dungeon, Level 4: The Snake. This item is used to allow Link to cross small holes and rivers that are as wide as he is.[1] This item is required to retrieve one of the five overworld Heart Containers found in the game. Also, there are numerous small holes in the floor of dungeons throughout the game that can be crossed, either for shortcut purposes or because they are in the way. The Stepladder is the only item Link can use to cross these gaps. Examples of these holes appear in most of the later dungeons, including Level 5: The Lizard and Level 7: The Demon.
