(see Ascent, Ladder, Mountain, Stairs) Ambitions and the desire for success.

If you dream of a very long climb, potentially the desire to retreat or escape. Alternatively, this can portend a lengthy period of hard work before you reach your goals.

To a platform: A type of ivory tower from which it is easy to fall. Alternatively, a place where you can get a better outlook.

Over a wall: Anxiousness, or the need to escape from a restrictive situation imposed by your family, society, religion, or whatever. Alternatively, overcoming an obstacle.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

Process to reach a goal. Going upward, or ascending, is always a positive dream symbol. Whether you are struggling on a difficult rope or ladder or walking up an easy slope, this dream suggests that you are moving in the right direction.

If the climb in your dream is extremely difficult, it may be pointing to some obstacles that you need to overcome before reaching your goals. Consider all of the details in your dream, and if you recently completed a difficult task, achieved a goal (e.g. graduating), this dream may be reflective in nature. See also: Cliff 

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

To dream of climbing up a hill or mountain and reaching the top, you will overcome the most formidable obstacles between you and a prosperous future; but if you should fail to reach the top, your dearest plans will suffer being wrecked.

To climb a ladder to the last rung, you will succeed in business; but if the ladder breaks, you will be plunged into unexpected straits, and accidents may happen to you.

To see yourself climbing the side of a house in some mysterious way in a dream, and to have a window suddenly open to let you in, foretells that you will make or have made extraordinary ventures against the approbation of friends, but success will eventually crown your efforts, though there will be times when despair will almost enshroud you. See Ascend Hill and Mountain.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Climbing indicates success by overcoming obstacles. On a ladder, setbacks but eventual success.

Psycho Dream Interpretation | Ella Freeman Sharpe

New American Dream Dictionary | Joan Seaman - Tom Philbin

It is a sign of business prosperity to find yourself Climbing, unless the effort proves too great for your strength. Still, even then it shows some sort of good fortune, though combined with difficulties.

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

Dreams about climbing represents overcoming obstacles and intellectual and social growth.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

You have high ambitions, but the path is often dangerous and difficult, in contrast to walking uphill, where you also want to advance, but the path usually is not difficult or dangerous. See Career, Ladder, Stairs.

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar

Vision: Dreaming about effortlessly climbing a ladder, stairs, or a hill means a successful conclusion of a project.

If the climb takes a lot of effort or is difficult: many problems need to be overcome before you are rewarded for your efforts. Climbing a high mountain: difficult obligations in your life have to be concluded. In the case of men, this dream symbol often indicates fear of sexual dysfunction. Climbing a steep mountain with your intimate partner: you desire sexual climax.

Depth Psychology: This dream symbol is always seen as a form of spiritual renewal.

If the dream has sexual connotations: you are longing to reach orgasm.

The dream could also raise such questions as: are you climbing the social ladder? Do you find the climb difficult? What else do you see on your climb? See Mountain, Rock.

Dreamers Dictionary | Garuda

Climbing up a rope, a ladder, or the side of something often reveals a struggle to overcome obstacles or having just recently overcome them. Mountains may also be a form of obstacle (e.g., “a mountain of work,” making a “mountain out of a molehill.”) Climbing also indicates rising with respect to social, economic, or artistic pursuits and intellectual and spiritual growth.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

A challenge in the dreamer’s life, or one coming up.

Climbing the ladder of success; attempting to reach the top.

Ascent towards higher consciousness, aiming for a higher purpose in life. Astrological parallels: Saturn, Capricorn Tarot parallel: The Fool

Dream Explanations of Astro Center | Astro Center

You are looking to grow and expand in your life and are expending a great deal of effort to this end.

A climb is the effort that must be expended to reach a particular goal. All goals require effort; many can involve struggle. As you identify what struggle in your life might be represented by the climb, the feelings and images in the dream can inform how you are approaching the current challenge in your life.

A dramatic shift is akin to embarking on a journey of some kind, whether it is emotional, financial, spiritual, or dealing with a health challenge. It may show up in a dream as a climb as your psyche tries to show you that you have the resources to make it to the top, despite the fear or intensity of the effort involved. By the same token, the dream may be telling you that you may be overemphasizing the struggles in your life and that you are applying more effort than is required.

If this is the case, consider the lack of balance between effort and expectations you are currently experiencing. Your job is to define the journey and find the balance between intent and effort. This way, the ascent to your destination can be met with joy and enthusiasm.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

Moving up in life or on the job, trying to get a better position in life

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

Climbing a ladder in a dream may reflect an upward movement in your career. Climbing a mountain may reflect your desire for spiritual truth and understanding. Climbing a rocky incline may represent overcoming some huge obstacle in your life.

Ariadne's Book of Dream | Ariadne Green

(see also Ascent, Height, Ladder, Mountain)

(1) Climbing may be a symbol of ambition or success. Does the climbing fill you with fear; or do you feel giddy when you reach the top? If so, this may symbolize a fear (unconscious) of ‘coming a cropper’. Perhaps you need to sort out an inferiority complex. On the other hand, the dream may be a warning. There is such a thing as climbing too high. ‘Pride comes before a fall.’

(2) Are you climbing (a tree, for instance) to escape from a fierce animal or to save yourself from a river in flood? This would symbolize an attempt to escape from some emotion, some inner disturbance; or from some external situation - at home or at work.

(3) Climbing a mountain may give you a panoramic view. This might mean that you desire - or need - a more detached view of yourself or your situation; that you need to get things in proportion; or that you need to lift yourself above mere material values.

(4) On the other hand, climbing a mountain may be a form of escapism, and the mountain an ivory tower where the world and your problems (external or inner) can be left behind. Needless to say, anxiety, resentment, inner conflict can never be left behind; not, at any rate, until you face them and talk things out with them. Otherwise, wherever you are, they are. (For ‘talking things out’)

(5) Climbing a wall, particularly if it has jutting-out bricks or stones that you can take hold of, may (Freud would say must) represent, for a male dreamer, sexual intercourse. The protuberances are symbols of female buttocks and breasts.

On the other hand, it may express (a need for) liberation - for example, from irrational or neurotic constraints; from a habit of selfdenigration; or from a state of morbid withdrawal from life.

A staircase allows you to move from one place to a destination that is located above or below you. Stairs are symbolic of your ability to raise your consciousness to a higher plane or explore deeper territory beneath you. Any set of stairs or steps in a dream is an indication of examining a higher or lower level of your psyche, depending on which direction you are moving.

If the stairs are in a home, it is your sense of self that is being examined. Social issues and how you operate in the world are connected to a stairway that is located in a building or public place. Moving upward could indicate an increase in awareness and a readiness to elevate your thought process. Moving downward might connect to reexamining your past or considering something more deeply....
