Chapter: Terrain

10.10

Translation:

With regard to precipitous heights, if you are beforehand with your adversary, you should occupy the raised and sunny spots, and there wait for him to come up.

Commentary

If you can occupy a high place that is warm enough, and if the enemy is obliged or motivated to attack such a position, then the height can give you a strong advantage as you fire down on him from this natural stronghold.
