How to Use Ledge Grab in Metroid Dread
Ledge Grab is a standard ability that allows Samus to hang onto ledges by jumping up or dropping onto them. Once you are clinging onto the ledge, you can continue making your way up by moving from ledge to ledge.
To grab onto a ledge, jump up or down to the edge of a platform and tilt the left stick toward the direction of the ledge. While hanging, Samus can fire her arm cannon, use free aim, and perform melee counters.

Ledge Grab can be activated while standing still, jumping, running, while grabbing onto a ledge, and while clinging onto magnet strips. While running, Samus will only be able to aim her shot in the direction she is facing.
Tips for Ledge grab
Practice with Free Aim and Melee Counter.
While hanging onto a ledge, offensive options such as Free Aim and Melee Counter will still be available to you and are useful when enemies are nearby. Free Aim, in particular, is among the most important skills to learn while grabbing onto a ledge, especially when targeting the weak point of bosses when the ground is not safe to stand on.
