Yes, this is so great if it's in. I'm replaying Gothic 2 right now and it's such a delight to explore vertically and think you basically broke the game by climbing so high only to find hand placed loot at the highest point.
Edit: Minor spoiler for Gothic2: Another great use of climbing in that game is when you are trying to get into the city. There are several ways to go about it by either paying a fee, dressing as a farmer, getting a city pass from a merchant and maybe another way I forget. However, there is a sort of a secret way to get in by climbing this hidden rock ledge and basically ending up on the other side of the city near the port and when you arrive at the docks, an NPC who is your friend from the first game recognizes the fact that you entered the city by swimming and you get additional experience points. Mind Blown.
