Seems like you could take advantage of DFCO, where you get the benefit of both the vacuum being generated for the brakes and zero fuel use of EOC... At least what I'm understanding is that the route is steep enough to require brake use, so taking advantage of engine braking too would (slightly) reduce the need for brake use.
