Default Men and women are different (you know this)

Men and women have different strengths in their muscles, tendons, bones,etc. If everything else is fairly equal, men are stronger than women thanks to biology. (I like to think women are smarter to make up for this difference. I also know we are much sneakier.)

Given a physical task like stair climbing, men have a clear advantage. Not counting women who are wearing some of the obscene footwear that is hot and favored by those sexy vixens in my gender population. Let Bubba, try stair climbing in 3 inch heels.

So yes, men are better stair climbers, And they are better at chopping wood, carrying cases of boxed soft drinks, and better at boxing, etc, Do you know how many punches it took Mike Tyson to score a knockout in his fights? One. Within are similar group of men, there is also the better at various parameters (like boxing, or how fast they can run, of how much weight they can lift.)

Let's assume your God given legs are in great shape (for now, your time in the barrel will come). You can also improve your stair climbing by practice, practice, practice. After one of my spectacular accidents and going thru a year of physical therapy, I had to climb stairs to graduate. I finally did - but i had to do the baby stairs in PT that had handrails on both sides. Why? Part was due to fear, I felt more secure with each hand on rails.) So, there are several factors that can compound two people in a side by side race or arduous task.

What would even be better who a man who is climbing with his woman - to assist her if he could. Is she carrying a heavy purse? You could help. Has she fallen down before on steps? You go in front of her to catch her if she falters. Or you make sure she has good footwear equal to the task. She could keep pretty shoes in a sack and change after the stairs. I even have trouble now putting on my shoes (after another spectacular fall). I have too many metal parts to put on shoes in public. My hubby of 37 years puts on my shoes. (It is a very sweet gesture in IMHO.)

I will shut up now, after this. You could also check the stairs before her to remove any debris or hazards that may be on the steps.) And if in your mind the stairs are unsafe - stop and escort her to a better path. You also may have to let her concentrate when doing such complicated, high risk activities. It takes 100% of my concentration - talking is a big distraction. (If you think I'm a pain in the butt, you're right. But I make up for such high maintenance items with other skills.)
