When you get the ‘You lack an item necessary to complete this shrine climb’ in Ghost of Tsushima, it means you need the Grappling Hook item to climb the tall rocks (shrines) on the map. When you collect the grappling hook item, you can climb up the shrines and you will no longer receive the message. That’s all there is to it. Thankfully, too, unlocking the grappling hook item is as simple as completing a quest.

To unlock the grappling hook, you need to complete “The Iron Hook” mission. Thankfully, this mission comes relatively early on into the game.

Again, completing The Iron Hook mission will unlock the grappling hook for you and remove the pesky Ghost of Tsushima you lack an item necessary to complete this shrine climb message. Now get out there, complete that quest, and unlock the grappling hook.
