That depends on lots of things, particularly how much fuel you're carrying and your climb speed.

The indicated airspeed gets lower, but true airspeed increases.

For a start take a look at the climb profile listed in the online POH.
Travelling on a flight that would be about 2 hours.
A quick google search ("mach cruise 777") turned up this:
"Typical Cruise Speed is 0.82 - 0.83 Mach @ FL300 - FL350"
As for rate of climb:
max. 3800 fpm @ 250kts below 10,000 feet
2000 - 2500fpm from 10,000 - 20,000ft @ 260 - 350kts
1800 - 1500fpm from 20,000 - 26,000ft
1500 - 400fpm from 26,000 - 35,000 ft depending on weight.
