Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the response of urinary excretion of catecholamines after a bout of outdoor sport rockclimbing. Design, setting & subjects: This study was undertaken outdoors in the Blue Mountains in NSW, Australia. Seven elite rockclimbers were recruited for the study. Each had previous experience with the climb route. The subjects were required to climb the route as fast as possible. Heart rate (HR) and urinary excretion of catecholamines epinephrine, EPI; norepinephrine, (NE) were measured pre-climb, immediately post-climb and 30 min post-climb.
