How long does it take you to reach cruising altitude?

I usually do,
Below 10,000 I do 2800 v/s
When I get to 10,000 I go down to 2500 v/s
When I speed up and get past 275 knots, I go down to 1800 v/s.
I thank @AlphaSeven for this info. It works great.
P.S If you are doing an ultra long haul I do
2300 v/s until 10,000
1900 v/s until 275 knots
Then 1500 v/s until cruise. Also works great
For step climbing I use 500 v/s
Hope this helped :)

10-30min, 10min if you are light and it’s a short haul, 30min if you are heavy and it is a long haul.

For long hauls make sure to keep throttle at 81% n1 unless you absolutely need more power, keep going up till it stars losing speed then cruise it at that altitude and wait for it to be ready to climb or the next altitude.

I usually climb with +2500 FPM below FL100 and above that I climb with +2000 FPM. So it usually takes me around 15 -18 minutes to reach my cruising altitude which is quite normal.
