I've biked this hill many times, but always I've stopped around the halfway point to rest. Either my breathing was too hard or my leg and shoulder muscles
were burning like crazy. This afternoon I rested between intervals with as much time as I wanted, and
I focused on doing each ascent without stopping. Woooo hoooo! Slowly, I'm getting into better shape. :)
Here's a video when I biked this hill five weeks earlier: Cycling The Steep Hill (6:57).
