    20 days perhaps??

    because the creature climbs 1ft each day i.e (3 up, 2 down, 3-2=1) thus, if he's starting of 20ft below the surface, it will take him 20 days to get out.

    no, it is 18 steps...

    See, it climbs 3 feet and slips down 2 feet.

    This means in 17 days it can reach 17 feet, right? So, on the 18th day, it will reach 20 feet and climb out of the well.. Why would it require 2 more days???
