Saving energy in hills and mountains

Do not lose height when walking in the hills or mountains.

My late uncle spent a considerable amount of time in the mountains of Yugoslavia during WWII.

Once during the 1950s he and I were walking up large granite hill in the Matopo Hills near Bulawayo in the then Southern Rhodesia.

His advice: When you climb a hill, if possible, take a line that does not go down and then up. This way you will not lose the height you have gained and save energy.
