Mountaineering

Sent here from /xs/. Is this the right board for mountaineering? I love hiking and have hiked 800-1200 metres up and down in single days before. However, I want to climb higher mountains now, several thousand metres high. I have snow boots, tent and sleeping bag, and almost nothing else. I know I will need ski poles (or are mountaineering sticks different?). What trousers do you recommend? as all my trousers are jeans and I don't like the smell of the waterproof spray. What are the best clothes at regulating body temperature? As you probably know, it can be quite warm for the first 1000 metres then very cold higher than that, especially at night. Usually i wear wool. I plan on climbing Kilimanjairo, which is why I need to do the research.
