This sentence is from a short story I am currently writing. I am not sure about the place of "on all fours"in my sentence. Would you please correct the mistakes?

I climbed out of the ditch on all fours onto the soft shoulder.

Or should be instead like this:

I climbed out of the ditch onto the soft shoulder on all fours.

Instead of the combination of "climbed" and "on all fours" you could just say "I crawled out of the ditch onto the soft shoulder".
