From the movie "Atomic Blonde" (2017)

In the movie, there's a news report about Berliners destroying the Berlin Wall. The reporter says:

East Berliners are overcome as they cross the border that has been closed to them for 28 years. West Berliners are chipping away at the wall that scarred their city and scaling it.

What does "slacing it" mean in this context?

To climb. "We spent our summer scaling cliffs along the coast". To me there is a connotation of vertical surfaces, you might scale a cliff or wall but not a tree.
