The quickest and the easiest way to get a grappling hook
I think the quickest way to get a grappling hook in terraria is by crafting a hook with gems. There are 7 types of gems on terraria called amethyst, ruby, sapphire. Topaz, emerald, diamond, and amber.
So you will be able to craft 7 different grappling hooks using these different gems.
You need 15 gems to craft a gem grappling hook. For example, if you have 15 diamonds you can craft a diamond grappling hook at an iron or lead anvil.

How to find gems fast in terraria
Now let’s talk about how to find gems to craft a grappling hook. After you survived your first night in terraria you must look around and try to find bombs. If you find bombs you will be able to dig down fast and find gems.
Also, you can use an extractinator to find more gems. Here is how. To do this first you must go to the ice biome and look for slush blocks and collect at least 150 slush blocks.
Also, go to the jungle biome and collect at least 150 slit blocks.
If you don’t have an extractinator don’t worry you can find it from the chests in the ice biome and jungle biome.
Now after you collected slit blocks and slush blocks you must go near the extractinator and press and hold the left mouse button while you are selecting slush/slit blocks. Now you will get gems, ores, money, and more things.
Even in the ice biome, you will be able to find gems. Only you have to do is collect 15 same gems to make a hook.
Also you can farm gem tress to collect gems. You can farm gem tress in the underground using gem corns.
So I thank it will be easier than crafting a grappling hook using a hook and chains because you have to wait until your enemies drop hooks.
