    Steep slope

    "Our car has to go through one more steep slope". Is it correct?

    Re: Steep slope

    It's not quite natural. "Our car still has to ascend/conquer one more steep slope.

    Another possibility is "climb".

    Re: Steep slope

    Or descend. It is winter here. Going down steep slopes can be just as challenging as going up.

    "Go up" or "go down" would be the most common choices.
