40,000 feet per minute?


"A lightly loaded Hustler would climb at nearly 46,000 ft/min (235 m/s),
comparable to the best contemporary fighters, and it could cruise with
a payload at 85,000 ft (26,000 m).

and:

"Despite its sophisticated technology and Mach 2 performance, its
operational flexibility was limited by high costs and changing
mission requirements leading to a brief career between 1960 and 1969.
