Scramble around branch (5)


I believe the answer is:


'scramble' is the definition.
(I know that scramble is a more specific form of the action climb)

'around branch' is the wordplay.
'around' becomes 'c' (abbreviation for 'circa').
'branch' becomes 'limb' (I've seen this before).

(Other definitions for climb that I've seen before include "Scale or clamber" , "Soar" , "Go upwards" , "Move upwards, ascend" , "Ascend, escalate" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
