Todd Martens of The Los Angeles Times wrote that while he enjoyed the song, he was unsure about the video. He commented that while the video was an improvement since Cyrus's video for " 7 Things " (2008), the settings in "The Climb" music video looked as though they had been painted by Thomas Kinkade and Cyrus's dancing appeared off-beat.  Travis of MTV described the video as "beautifully shot (although heavily digitized)".  Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo! Music remarked that the summit setting was similar to that of the music video for Britney Spears ' " I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman ".  Parker also felt the scene in which Cyrus looks out over the cliff, shot using large sweeps with an aerial camera, had been "lifted straight out of an '80s Bon Jovi video".   In 2009 , the video received a MuchMusic Video nomination for Best International Artist Video , but lost to Lady Gaga 's music video for " Poker Face ".
