Climbing as a young sport is growing fast. The fastest growing part of the sport is due to indoor walls for training attracting youngsters. With hard training from young ages it is vital to be able to pinpoint training regimes to avoid injuries in athletes. This reviews purpose is to search the literature to investigate what group of climbers are most prone to injury and which injuries are the most common. Method: A semi structured literature search was conducted in PubMed on September 11 2013. Result: The search gave 1244 titles. All titles were carefully searched for the possible finding of descriptions of climbing related chronic injuries. This led to the reading of 96 and then to a final inclusion of 44 papers. We found descriptions of 45 chronic injuries the 17 papers. Discussion: Due to methodological differences, lack of reporting strategies and not using control groups in the included papers it is not possible to conclude on which groups of climbers are more prone to injuries or to which state the injuries are most prevalent amongst climbers.
