What fingerings do you use for climbing up intervals? So far I've got this:

m2 (chromatic)>>>
Starting on C:
LH: 5432143214321
RH: 1234123412345

M2 (wholetone)>>>
Starting on C:
LH: 3214321
RH: 1212345
Starting on B:
LH: ?
RH: 1231234

m3
M3
P4
TT
P5
m6
M6
m7
M7
P8

That is all I have so far, but I'm looking to find good fingerings for each of the other intervals including all their variations. I imagine once I get to perfect 4ths and above they'll probably look more or less the same, but I've been trying to find stuff on YouTube, but information about this is kind of scattered so any help would be great. Especially for m3 and M3. For chromatic, I've also done some variations of 1313123131312 as well which feels more comfortable, but is slower.

Hello. My suggestion is to put this effort aside right now, and focus on correct fingering for major scales and major triad arpeggios (if this gets boring too quickly, expand to include minor scales and triads), and working on playing songs appropriate for your skill level. I say this because I think over time, you will go farther putting your time and effort into being familiar with playing scales and arpeggios, than time spent on figuring out how best to finger different intervals.

In my day-to-day musical life, I often need to play a scale or arpeggiate a chord in performing a song. And it is rare that I need to play an ascending series of a given intervals, such as minor thirds or major sixths.

My own experience tells me that if you spend quality time making your fingers familiar with scales and arpeggios, the playing of serial intervals will come easier to you.

We don't 'climb up intervals' though we might negotiate them when we're doing other things.

What pieces are you learning, i.e. where are you on your piano journey, and what are you trying to achieve with this exercise?
