As part of my degree I'm carrying out a research topic looking at why there are so few female winter climbers. Please help me with this by completing this short questionnaire http://tolu.na/ShD1js
There's only 12 questions and it should take about 5 min to complete.
Thanks for your help!

try it in the winter forum.

In reply to French Erick: Thanks, but I think that would bias my results due to the specificity of my project.

Nice quick survey, and not poorly written, like many that are posted here :)

Shame I don't Ice climb

Done. I'm not sure the answers given by a fat old punter who only leaves the house in the spring sunshine and returns when the first winds of autumn blow is going to help your project...sorry.

It wasn't clear to me which circle to tick for male or female and anyway it said "not enough single choice answers" and wouldn't let me progress.

What am I dong wrong?

"why there are so few female winter climbers"

is that a valid assumption these days? In my experience I'd say that there's a greater proportion of women winter climbers than women summer climbers.

My immediate thought too
In reply to Sally Hudson: I'll save you the hassle - it's because women complain about being cold under a 13 tog duvet with the heating on...
In reply to Sally Hudson: Done - well thought-out survey )))
Sally Hudson - on 27 Jan 2013
In reply to Toreador: Surprisingly it is valid. According to the Mountaineering Council of Scotland's most recent member survey less than 50% of women who climb in summer also climb in winter. I think it's interesting to know why this is.

In reply to Sally Hudson: Err, they don't like getting cold?

That's my reason and I'm male!

What's the male percentage out of interest?
Sally Hudson - on 27 Jan 2013
In reply to Bulls Crack: The actual figures from the MCofS are: 25% of female members trad climb, and 11% of female members winter climb. For men, 39% trad climb and 29% winter climb.

In reply to Sally Hudson: My friend Pat Deavoll wrote about this question (in relation to Alpinism rather than Scottish winter but the reasons may be similar) in her book Wind from a Distant Summit. Might be worth a read?

Broken answered 5 and 6 as yes yet it is asking why I don't ice climb in 7 and 8. Abandoned survey....

You need to put N/A as in non applicable in the answers that are N/A to proceed.

Yeah nice and quicky survey.

I only have one female pal who winter climbs with me and we both actually prefer good winter conditions to summer routes.

Getting off thread here, but if only 39% of male MCofS members trad climb what the hell else do the other 61% do to the total exclusion of trad climbing?
