How to prompt: Climb into the Sky

For today's prompt you don't have to title your piece "How to ..." (though you certainly can if you'd like to) or even make it a step by step process like a recipe, the process should merely be described at some length during your piece.

How to Climb into the Sky

This could be a metaphoric climbing like taking flight in an airplane or hot air balloon, it could be about rock climbing, or climbing the trail at Mount Huashan. or it could be magic realism like Mr. Mendoza in Luis Alberto Urreas' amazing story "Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush" from his must-have collection of short fiction Six Kinds of Sky. Maybe it's a tale of learning to climb and clearing the canopy for the first time. Plenty of range to make this your own.
