"Once he started at Paramount in 1967, he moved rapidly up the corporate ladder."
Can I also say clim the ladder or go up the ladder instead of move up in this context?
I prefer to put "rapidly" before "moved" or "climbed". (not separating 'moved up')
You do need "up" after "moved", but not after "climbed". (although you could use it)
So you can say, 'Once.........1967, he rapidly (moved up)(climbed) the corporate ladder.'
