At or above doesn't mean you have to start down right away. Studying that approach chart should show that high terrain goes all the way through the arc and through BRKET and SERTE. Some people are just wired to put the lowest cleared altitude and start down.

These approach plates are color coded now so telling terrain apart is really easy. Yikes on this approach! Glad EGPWS saved them.
