Hello.

Thank you for the report. I am able to replicate the getting stuck at the very top of the ladder, not at the bottom.

Hello.

Thank you for the report. I am able to replicate the getting stuck at the very top of the ladder, not at the bottom.

No problem.

Getting stuck at the bottom of the ladder was whilst I was attempting to get close enough (already in water, swimming) in order to get the scroll wheel and/or the up arrow option to then climb said ladder.

Replication: Try swimming towards/at the lowest point of the ladder (under water) in order to try and obtain a player climb up action and/or up arrow.

The method used in how to receive the climb up option seems to be a very specific memory point, and quite often I get stuck at the bottom of ladders whilst trying to attempt to climb up (have also witnessed other players getting stuck).

Suggestion, having multiple memory points for player climb up action on the ladder instead of just one (one?) would help due to object height placement can be changed relative to ASL, which means that in order to get the player action to appear (one memory point for climb action), there is some trial-and-error in swimming towards/against/close-to the ladder due to object positioning... which can lead to the player getting stuck at the bottom of the ladder (under water) even before a climb action has appeared.
