Climbing boots are used in the Death Plateau, Troll Stronghold, Eadgar's Ruse, and Troll Romance quests. They also make the Desert Treasure quest a lot easier. They can be taken (along with an iron bar) to the blacksmith in Burthorpe (Dunstan) to produce spiked boots.
After finishing Death Plateau (players who finished the quest before the Burthorpe makeover need to complete it again), players may buy climbing boots from Freda for 12 coins or a more expensive pair of Rock Climbing boots for 75,000 coins, which give combat stat bonuses. "Plain" climbing boots cannot be bought through the trade interface, only through dialogue, and you can only buy them if you don't already have them.

- Prior to 24 June 2010, there was only one type of climbing Boots, which cost 12 coins and had the combat stat bonuses of rock climbing boots. After the update, all climbing boots in prior possession were converted to rock climbing boots. This made many player killers who had many of them in their possession gain massive amounts of money.
