In my first language when we talk about some index rising or, for example, somebody climbing a mountain we often use the phrase that can be directly translated into English like 'crossed the mark (of 1 km above the sea)', meaning that the index or the person have reached certain level/altitude and is now above it. Is there a phrase in English that means the same thing and sounds natural?
