Climbing a wall with Ninja Sword myth


One of well known Ninjustu "Using a sword as a step when climbing a wall." 
I'm not sure who or when the myth was created but there's a description about it on the Edo period book called "Kenko Shinron" (剣甲新論 1865) written by Oken Suzuki.
The book is about swords.


Original text
(以下は)俗説にて取るに足らず。攻城塀乗等の時、刀の下緒の片端を栗形へ結び付け片端を帯へ結び付け、刀を塀へ立て掛け鐔を足掛かりにし塀上へ取り乗り、下緒を引きて刀の来る如くする事あり、栗形を丈夫にするはこれ等の為なり。
(referred from https://ameblo.jp/o-deco-3/entry-11964473059.html)

Translation
(Following is ) Nothing more than a myth.  When castle siege, tie one end of Sageo cord to Kurikata, the other end to Obi sash, lean the sword against the wall and climb the wall by stepping on Tsuba. Pull the cord to bring the sword back. This is the reason why Kurikata need to be sturdy.


The myth existed as a myth in the 19th century already.
And the myth was nothing to do with Ninja. 

*Kurikata, Sageo, Tsuba are name of Japanese sword parts.
