Heart rate versus gradient

It's striking how closely correlated my heart rate is to the gradient.  Maybe I should be working significantly harder on the downhills?

This run was done with Andy who's a better climber than descender (compared to me) so the peaks and troughs are more pronounced than they would have been if I'd been on my own.   It'd be interesting to see his heart rate compared to mine. I'd guess his would be flatter?
