Yes, walls are ment to be climbed. Physical and metaphysical. I have always been curious about the view on top of any climb, humans are naturally curious... we want to know the unknown, see the unseen, feel the unfelt.
But, we also love making walls.
"There was a wall. It did not look important. It was built of uncut rocks roughly mortared; an adult could right over it, and even a child could climb it. Where it crossed the roadway, instead of having a gate it degenarated into mere geometry, a line, an idea of boundary. But the idea was real. It was important... like all walls it was ambiguous, two faced. What was inside it and what was outside it depended upon which side of it you were on." Writes Ursula Le Guin, in her mastework The Dispossessed.
