What does this sentence mean, exactly? It seems like an awkward translation.

Descida means hillside, or declivity. So, this sentence means that to get to a place they preferred not going down. Descida is opposed to subida (acclivity). But they both also mean something that goes up or down, like prices, your position, etc. But i dont think this is what they meant to say in that sentence.
