Wall Run
If you want to climb over a building but cannot fly, you could try several options. If you are a good climber, or a bug, you could Wall Crawl up it. If you are agile enough, you could Wall Jump from wall to wall to slowly but eventually get to the top.

But in this trope, they just run up it! They either have the superhuman strength or speed or ability to simply run up a smooth, flat, vertical surface at high speeds, even if logically they shouldn't be able to.
