Climb the Mountain

board game

Parker Brothers produced a game in 1951 titled "Climb the Mountain." Playing like a version of Chutes and Ladders, the game features both setbacks and boosts. The first player to reach the last space, at the top of the mountain, is the winner. It appears that Parker produced this game only in 1951.
