IMHO It very much depends on the hill, if theres bulldust I would assume its dry and then you could take a steady approach with a bit of right foot in reserve as you should have lots of traction under the bulldust. If you have to go hard I would walk up and poke around in the bulldust to see whats underneath, wouldnt want to bang a hole hard halfway up a hill.

Anyways, hills are 1st or 2nd low anyway, just need to keep up a bit of momentum, unless its a sand hil like Ruth's darling Big Red in that case hard as you can in 3rd low and keep going

Traction in bull dust is usually not a problem so slow & steady is best as it often hides ruts. Have you come accross it as bull dust on a steep slope is pretty rare?
