The paper is an excellent overview of high clinical importance. The first author is an expert in climbing herself and therefore the paper is a recommendable source of information for orthopaedic surgeons as well as general practitioners. The need for further investigations and professional medical care for young climbers should be emphasised. The authors' observations concerning physical injuries and malnutrition can be confirmed by our own findings.
