The Forest is a survival game that requires you to find certain items to progress the story.
One of it is the climbing axe and it’s used to scale the walls with no ropes in sight.
Here’s how you can find the climbing axe in The Forest (location).
Look for the cave entrance
There are a few different cave entrances to look for the climbing axe as they’re connected.
One of them is through this area (image below). You can see the mountain from here, and a river at the bottom.
The cave entrance is just nearby.
Location of climbing axe
Once you’re inside the cave, head to where the red arrow is pointing to.
That’s where the climbing axe is. This is the map of the cave.
You’ll see a light pointing towards the wall. The climbing axe is there for you to take.
