personally for me when im trying to go as fast as possible up a hill i ride avery constant pace (i've included a kom i won where i rode at a very constant power. the power drops a lot becuase of the spider flexing, and not reading the magnet, but just look at the last minute versus the first minute. theres a difference, but not nearly as much as a difference as a lot of people would expect.) also i think i would climb the hill you pointed out in about the same time as old mill, so its a similar power graph.
