Recently my crankset has become creaky whenever I peddle hard or up a hill

Is your bottom bracket press fit or threaded?

tighten everything - from your peddle spindles to the hexbolts holting the chainrings on. It doesnt take much to cause a creak.

Time for a service and get your hands dirty

Sounds counterintuitive...but a little grease on the crank bolt threads can help a lot.
(Spline/Crank connection and pedal threads should hopefully be greased already)
