上る should allow "to ascend" as a correct answer

@Mods what do you think?

I like it, but I’m a bit of a word nerd. I suppose it couldn’t hurt, since it wouldn’t affect anyone who didn’t choose to use that phrasing. Then again, it’s pretty easy to add as a synonym, right? :slight_smile:

Is it on a blocklist or something? I don’t disagree, but I don’t see why you couldn’t just add it as one if you feel that way.

Hey everyone! I will add “to ascend” to the allow list for 上る. Just remember, as the Jisho entry says, it only applies to 上る and 登る.

I also want to make sure you know about user synonyms where you can add your own translations and they will be marked correct, as long as they aren’t already added to the block list!
