Why did No.1 climb up into the nose cone of the rocket? Basically there was nowhere else for him to go. He certainly didn’t want No.6 laying hands upon him! And besides, there appears to be an unwritten law for villains. That when being pursued by the “good guy,” the villain has the overwhelming desire to climb things, ladders, stairs, or by any other means just as long as they go upwards. To climb to a higher level in the hope of escape!
