The authors have reviewed the physiological responses caused by load during rock climbing in young athletes. They focus particularly on preventive aspects of this fantastic sport. As a climber and as specialist who regularly gives lectures about this topic, especially on preventative aspects for children and adolescents, I welcome such a review, which will be especially valuable for colleagues who do not specialise in this area and who are unable to read all the literature on rock climbing.
