I definately think you need to use both in and out of seat climbing to get the best effort out of a climb. I train with hr and power meter but when I tt a climb I go by feel. You need to flat line your hr and maintain momentum in your bike. When you hit a switchback take the steep line and get out of the seat, this is shorter in distance but also faster. Getting out of the seat adds 30watts to my effort but is not sustainable over a long climb. So then its straight back in the saddle and get the rhythm going again. Analyse the gradient as you climb and pick out the pinches and corners where you can stand up always monitoring momentum. If you get bogged down digging post holes you are not at optimum. Try getting out of seat before even thinking of changing to an easier gear (unless of course you have just bitten off way too much). My best advice is train for both and experiment on a known climb to maximise your effort. I must have climbed arthurs seat a couple of hundred times now and i know every cm of road and how to get the best out of myself. PB currently at 9.11.

All these coments are good but here is something else to consider. Riding a smaller gear will make your cadence higher and therefore the time spent during the dead spot of your pedal cycle 12 and 6 o'clock is reduced. The steeper the hill. the more important this becomes. Time spent in the dead spot is where gravity pulls you backwards. Ride big gears to develop strength yes but when doing your normal mileage just ride as many hills as possible and keep cadence 90-100 rpm. At times this will mean massively under gearing yourself, your average speed for your ride will suffer but the fitness gains are huge. Invest in a 27 cog........
