Also comes back to basic game design. You can not make areas where Grapple is your only option, unless you force the ability on players (taking away its organic usefulness).

I mean, you can. It's not being integrated as a permanent part of your toolset. It's just another option. Those areas can be alternate paths, or advantageous points without being the only path or advantageous place to be.

Like, you can beat Mario 3 without the raccoon tail. But there's lots of areas where it's required to reach, or other places where it's advantageous to have.

You 100% can create situations for players to exploit with grapple without it being a requirement.
