Can you climb the ladder with thresh?

I main support and jungle, and my favorite support is thresh, I havenīt played ranked because I am mastering 5 champions to its fullest and thresh has being one of them since I started playing. My question is, can you gain elo and become gold maining thresh as support considering he is banned/first picked in almost every single game? Or does that only happens upper leagues?

Lower elos hes not banned nearly as much. Its almost always the same 5 bans are:

Blitz
Amumu
Malphite
Hecarim
Shen

Then the sixth can vary depending on who the captain hates to play against:

Aatrox/Udyr(fotm skin)/Elise/Jayce

Maybe a Thresh every once in a while but overall most low elos don't consider supports when banning.

You don't climb it. You sit and wait at he bottom until you're not banned. Then you hook your way to the top. Climbing is for champions without hooks.

In not crazy talk: When you're not banned, you can shoot to the top of ladder. Problem is, you're banned a lot.
