Topic - Women and winter climbing

SARS on 01 Nov 2012
What are the issues, if any, with women and winter/Scottish mixed climbing? Are there special considerations needed to be taken into account?

A friend of mine whose a climber is thinking of trying the winter stuff but she's a bit hesitant. Her build is quite slight, is strength an issue - re axes and crampon use as well as lugging heavy backpacks?

I'm interested in particularly womens' input into this. Cheers.
