You stand facing the fence’s face. Do not trap the workpiece in between the bit and the fence. Not only climb cutting is dangerous (esp when the workpiece is trapped between the fence and the bit), you may spoil the workpiece and also the bit. Sometime I need to do climb cutting, I do it only when the workpiece is wide and long enough for me to securely hold it and fully in control.

As seen in this pic, the bit rotates from left to right (anti clockwise) you feed the stock from right to the left.
The fence acts as guide and limit the depth/thickness of each cut. Gradually move the fence to the back until the stock is guided by the bit bearing (if any).
