Need help on uphill MUni mounting

Had a wonderful 2 hour MUni workout today --

Nailed just about every single mount -- so long as it was level or downhill. But uphill's a different story. Normally I static mount when I MUni, but it's just not working when the trail's tilted uphill. I've tried mounting sideways in the trail to lessen the slant, which helps a little, but then I have to do an immediate twist to point the correct direction, which often throws me. I also tried a rollback, thinking that might let me stabilize into a power position if I let it rollback far enough, but then you have to reverse the downhill momentum into uphill progress which seems even more difficult. I also tried mounting sideways and then hopping into the correct uphill direction, but again, starting the uphill progress proved difficult.

Do I just need more practise at this, or does someone have some tips that might help?
