Cartilage - meniscus: Crouching and climbing increase the load across the patellofemoral joint under the knee cap and cartilage damage in the area of the patella and trochlear groove would cause pain when crouching or climbing stairs. A meniscal tear would also likely be more symptomatic with crouching or climbing stairs. Orthopaedic evaluation is indicated.

Overuse of quads..: The quadriceps muscles are the ones on top of the thigh, that connect your pelvis to your knee; underlying bone is the femur (longest in body). Most common cause of what you are describing are not well conditioned quads that are then overused (long runs, stairs..). The quads are key muscles to develop for any lower extemity activity. Weak quads r one of the most common causes of falls in elderly.
