Hilly or not?

So, in my quest to describe my rides to friends and family members in different states, I've became caught up in terminology. How do you quantify how hilly a ride was, or how much effort was given during a ride? I've recently been using strava, and I like it a lot. I don't have a premium account, so I can't use the suffer score, nor do I have a computer. I use the strava app, so I can see splits, climbs, segments, ect...

Questions:

How hilly would you rate this ride? http://app.strava.com/rides/9242348
Arbitrary scale of 0-5

How accurate would you say the power column is? It seems very high, but I don't have a meter of any sorts to measure with.

I hate hills, so I would give it a four out of five.

Isn't a thread on bicycles in foo punishable by banishment?

ha! you're right! I didn't realize I was still in foo when I started the thread.

If it is the will of the powers that be, move to the appropriate place.

To me, it's hilly when the kids in the trailer make me fall below a steady 10mph.
