"O grupo decidiu evitar a descida."

Translation:The group decided to avoid the descent.

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.
