How many calories burned walking up and down 13 stairs?
5ft 7in, 207lbs, male. I plan to do this about 100 times. It takes approx. 15secs to walk up and down them once.

You'd need to judge by comparing your perceived exertion level and pulse rate to another activity. You can find exertion level graphs online.

The more you weigh, the more calories you'll burn climbing stairs. Harvard Health Publications reports that a 125-pound person expends 360 calories using a stair step machine for one hour, a 155-pound individual burns 446 calories and a 185-pound person expends 532 calories per hour climbing stairs.You would only be doing this for 15 mins and may burn approx 75 calories given that half of the time you will be descending.

On my StairMaster, inputting that weight and doing 25 minutes at that given rate, which is how long it would take you to do what you describe, it says you burn 408 calories. Of course, what you will burn will be somewhat less because StairMasters only have you climb, never descend.
