    Common accidents when indoor rock climbing


    Indoor rock climbing in gyms, leisure centres or amusement parks, on cruise ships or in parks invariably exposes climbers to the risk of sustaining more or less severe accidental injuries.

    Common indoor rock climbing injuries

    Common personal injuries sustained while indoor rock climbing include:

    • Broken or fractured bones
    • Cuts, bruises and lacerations
    • Rope burn to the hands and body
    • Torn ligaments and spinal cord injuries
    • Traumatic brain injuries of varying severity

    Falls from height occasionally also result in deaths

    Common causes of indoor rock climbing injuries

    Many who enjoy indoor rock climbing are injured by accidents involving faulty:

    • Ropes and harnesses
    • Chains and anchors
    • Hardware or other major parts of the wall

    • Forceful contact with the wall
    • Collisions with ‘rocks’ and other projections on the surface of the wall
    • Being hit by other climbers falling from height
    • Being struck by falling objects, such as pieces of equipment dropped by other climbers

    Poor supervision and employee training are also occasionally the cause of indoor rock climbing accidents, as are slips, trips and falls on the ground.

    Slip and trip hazards

    Trip, slip and fall injuries are often caused by:

    • Wet, loose or damaged flooring
    • Dropped food or spilled drinks
    • Dropped or carelessly deposited equipment and bags
    • Poor lighting in corridors and stairways
    • Potholes or debris on outdoor paths and car parks

    On cruise ships, trip and fall injuries may also be caused by sudden up-and-down or sideways movements of the ship due to rough seas.

    Hurt by indoor rock climbing incidents

    If you suffered a rock climbing, slip, trip or fall injury through no fault on your part, you may qualify for a personal injury claim.
