I don't know whether this holds true for stair climbing, but when hiking on an incline, each vertical foot is about equivalent in effort to 8 vertical feet. So add 520 feet to the horizontal distance for each return trip.

The only way you're really going to get an estimate that's close is to use a heart rate monitor. :) There's too many variables with stairs to use an online calculator.

I walk a local set of steps that are 234 stairs down to the river from a roadside river overlook. It's 65 feet down and back up. I know I am not accurately tracking the calories for this as it doesn't track well distance wise thru either sport tracker or runtastic...Is there some way to accurately track this? I do at least 2 sets 3 or more days per week.
