ATC and SID question

I was at seattle and witnessed a triple seven vertical climb out of the airport. I’m pretty sure the reason behind that was because the SID the pilot followed has a left turn 10 miles away from the airport so the only way to reach 5000ft in 10 miles was to vertical climb. I’m just wondering if I should follow the SID in my FPL or instructions the ATC gives me because I’m worried of getting ghosted 😅. Thank you!

Always follow ATC, its rule of thumb!

Hi! I believe I was your controller today.

I too noticed the 777 climbing vertically.

Always follow ATC instructions, as we want you to have a safe experience without any conflicts.

Thanks :)
