I do a little of both depending on how long the hill is. I usually start by sitting until it starts hurting or I'm getting bored, then I stand up and pedal. Standing to pedal up a hill is pretty draining so you can't do it forever but uses different muscles so it feels good when you switch from sitting down. If you're not comfortable standing while climbing you should do some practicing as much as possible. Hope this helps.
