Why do children climb up slides?


If you have ever spent much time at a playground you might have seen that small children love to slide down slides, and that they also love to climb up them. Playground slides are not designed to climb. They are steep and slippery, and have no hand holds. And that is precisely the attraction for little ones -- Just wondering, what could be the psychological reason behind that?
