Climbing Claws are retractable spikes worked into the arms and legs of a suit of Armor. When wearing this Armor, you gain a Climb Speed equal to one-half your your armored waling speed. Additionally, you can reroll a failed Climb check (Keeping the better of the two results) and can Take 10 on Climb checks even when rushed or threatened.
The wearer can use Climbing Claws to attack foes in melee. They count as being Weapons two sizes smaller than the wearer, and they deal Slashing Damage equal to the base Claw Damage for a Beast of that size (See Allies and Opponents). For example, a Medium character would have Tiny Climbing Claws that deal 1d4 points of Slashing Damage. If your are proficient with the suit of Armor you're wearing, you are proficient with any Climbing Claws installed on it.
