Wizard might have a choice between good and bad on any given skill, but that's only because they could afford tons of Int. Paladins, Clerics, Fighters, and Sorcerers just got to suck at almost everything.Any sorcerer that wants to be good at climbing in Pathfinder can be good at climbing in Pathfinder.
However, investing significant resources in "being able to swim or climb" is a tremendously poor use of resources for a Sorcerer (or most people but especially a Sorcerer). Now you get to be competent at basic tasks without sacrificing your ability to do the things you are expected to be able to do.
