If I have a tall square tower, and a spider is climbing up one side of it, can it continue around to another side while still climbing? Or would it have to start climbing from the bottom again?

Similarly, if it were inside the tower and climbing on the inner wall, can it turn an inside corner and keep going? (I'm assuming yes on this one, seems easier.)

    Can you turn corners while climbing a ladder? The climbing behavior mimics ladders, as far as I know. May 27, 2011 at 20:52

No. Spiders cannot turn corners on the inside or the outside of a structure. They can move along a wall, but fall off when they try to cross a vertical corner. This video isn't a perfect demonstration but it does show in a couple of parts how the spider gets stuck trying to go round a corner. here

    The linked video doesn't answer whether or not a spider can turn an interior corner, it only demonstrates that they can't turn an exterior corner.
