People who climb outdoors under their own power (possibly with help from their climber companions), and are notable for this.
Most such people are notable for doing this climbing on mountains, and should belong indirectly to this category via their (direct or indirect) membership in its sub-category Category:Mountain climbers. Thus no one should be placed directly in this category (or in any of its descendants that are not also descendants of Category:Mountain climbers), without being, e.g.:
- notable for ice-climbing frozen waterfalls that aren't on mountainsides,
- notable for climbing climbing walls, buildings, and/or other artificial structures, or
- notable for rock-climbing (relatively small) rock faces, for bouldering, or for tree-climbing, other than in the course of climbing a mountain.
(In the case of people notable both for mountain climbing and, say, flat-land tree climbing, there would be a need to weigh whether the tree climbing was primarily a natural consequence of the mountain-climbing skills, or primarily a means of building those skills, and whether one reason for notability outweighed and obscured the other. Noting such reasoning on the talk page of the person whose bio was placed in the two categories would be wise, to avoid the person's removal from one category based on the impression that the double membership was just one more careless category assignment.)
