When gradients increase what happens to distance between isolines?

I assume you may be talking about cliffs and mountains, and isolines referring to lines of equal elevation. Thus when the gradient increases, you are saying you are climbing or moving up a cliff, or hillside. The isolines become closer together, the steeper the incline. If you are climbing a wall, the isolines would be one on top of the other as you ascend, and it would be difficult to view them as separte lines. Hope this answers your question.
