Seeding a hill

Looking for any advice on tilling and seeding a hill. I have installed numerous lawns but nothing with such an incline. Not sure how well a tractor with tiller will work. Any advice, tips or tricks would be appreciated.

With the way those washouts look I don't think I would till at all... Shape with an iron rake and cover with shredded straw and a high % of annual ryegrass...
Only with the greatest luck will this be done in a one time shot... mowing is also going to be a problem so I would try to convince the client of something more sensible...

Thanks for the replies. I would say at least a 2:1 rise. I told the they need some sort if stepped retaining way. They agreed but can't afford it this year, maybe in a couple of years. Just want to get grass on there now to help with runoff.
