You aways back-up, UP hill. So to use the big words, anyone descending must back up, anyone ascending has the right-a-way.
This is an old law from back before disc brakes, drum brakes work better when rolling forward, the new disc brakes work either way, but the law has never changed. It works fine this way so hopfully the law will never change.
I myself use the rule of who it is safest for.
on flat land you can fight about it or you can just find a place to make room. whichever way you like the best. :-)
