"Ko-Metru is no place to climb. Slip and fall to your doom, sure, but not climb. The trick to catching Crystal Climbers is getting to them, since they favor the highest points in a Knowledge Tower. Then, once you have them snagged with a spinner, make sure they don't fall off the tower — they make a heck of a mess down below."

Crystal Climbers are predatory Rahi with a predisposition for precipitous hunting grounds.
On Metru Nui, Crystal Climbers made their homes on the Knowledge Towers of Ko-Metru, scurrying from one icy rooftop to the next. Though the Crystal Climbers fed on Ice Bat pests, the Ko-Matoran did not welcome the presence of Crystal Climbers, since they were particularly difficult to remove from a suitable hunting ground. Entire Knowledge Towers had to be closed down while Vahki tried to root them out.
Abilities and Traits
Each Crystal Climber has sharp claws that can hold on to cold and slippery surfaces, and use their long, thin tails for balance. They have excellent night vision, and their glowing red eyes were a common sight on a Ko-Metru evening.
Crystal Climbers form small, tight-knit groups and react ferociously to intrusions from other species. It has been theorized that too many Crystal Climbers on a Knowledge Tower could cause a Tower to collapse, so the Rahi have learned not to congregate in large numbers.
- The Crystal Climber was created by BIONICLE fan Johnathan Mastron. It was sent in to LEGO as part of the LEGO Magazine Rahi-Building Contest. It was given a name and story role by Greg Farshtey in the book BIONICLE: Rahi Beasts.
