What does it mean when you dream about climbing?

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.

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, this dream may be reflective in nature.
