Basically, it was less than 5 km straight-line distance, but takes a very long time to traverse -- a factor of going up the ridgeline is how I would consider it.

I've always thought this as well, but I do not know enough about historical/classical troop movement speeds to say that DP is inaccurate in this case -- given the need for supplies, it may be that the normal Open Terrain movement rate represents a maximum sustainable, day-in-day-out rate. Didn't we once discuss adding a Forced March rule that allows any unit to forced march at any time, but at the cost of becoming disrupted or something like that?
