Is this related to sports?

Is climb as in ascending something? If not, climb as in ratings/ranking? How about climb as in popularity?

If Perkan did not get serious, is there a chance he would have died because of it?

Is Perkan in a hurry to get upstairs?

Before all this, was Perkan deciding whether to get up or not?

Does he have a fear for escalators? For moving machineries?

Are there any concrete staircases involved? (Like, a broken staircase, where he had no choice but to take an escalator, on which he is afraid of)

Do the other people in the scenery have actual interaction with Perkan? Talked to him? Touched him? Looked at him?

*********************SPOILER*********************

Nobody was insight, and Perkan wanted to rush down the up-moving escalator. However, somebody showed up, and since he didn't want to make fool of himself, he simply let the escalator take him up.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and congratulations to Nosleepboy who got the biggest part!
