As you have some fair climbing to do, remove excess weight.

Have you increased the tyre pressure ?
If not, gradually increase tyre pressure - 44 psi should still be OK.
I run sidewall max : 51 psi.

Don't use CC uphill - if you do so now.
Use a steady accelerator position and let speed decay as low as practical uphill.
If the climb is preceded by a downhill, get some additional speed downhill and let the momentum help carry you uphill.
