Ladder Cancel Warping

From SpeedSouls - A Dark Souls Speedrunning Wiki

Ladder warping is a glitch caused by canceling the initial ladder climbing animation with another animation. Any animation can trigger the ladder warp: a weapon transformation, shooting a bullet, toggling a weapon, consuming a health vial, etc.

The player is able to move while maintaining the ladder as their last standing location. Upon saving and quitting the game, the player will spawn back at the base of the ladder.

This is most often used on the ladder before Amelia to avoid running back down the steps to the Forbidden Woods and also is used in certain chalices in the All Achievements category.
