I've added a photo showing part of the underground run exposed during
basement work and no, it doesn't really slope up as it appears in the photo.
However that end now has a sweep L that does go vertical. The conduit was
adjusted to give a slight tilt when we back filled. Air flows freely
through it and condensation has never been a problem.
