“The price of wheat is climbing.” 「小麦の価格が上がっています。」

“If you climb up the tree, you can reach the window.” 「木に登れば窓に届きます。」

Climbは普段「上がる」「登る」という意味です。株の価格も飛行機も上がることができます。

ただし、木に登れば、降りるときもclimb downと言えます。人(サル、猫なども)が登るときと同じような動きを使って木、岩、壁などをどの方向に移動してもclimbと言えます。

“Climb” usually means “go up”. Stock prices can climb. Airplanes can climb.

However, if you climb a tree, you can also climb back down. People (and monkeys, cats, etc.) can climb in any direction by using the same movements you would use to climb up a tree, rock, wall, etc.
