I'm no expert, but you may be crossing the chain too much. Instead of leaving it in "2" and dropping all the way to the lowest gear, try going to "1" on the left (front chain ring) and "2 or 3" on the right (rear cassette). Find the combination that does not cross the chain so far but work for the climb you need.
