What's about rock climbing is making my elbow hurt?

I've gotten into rock climbing (indoor rock walls), and I'm starting to experience some elbow pain.

Here's what happens: I climb (currently I can comfortably climb most 5.9 walls and some 5.10A walls), and after three or four walls, my elbows hurt- specifically on the sides of the elbows, both arms. I have been climbing for about two months, and I go between once a week and three times a week.
A brief bout of googling reveals that I most probably have this
Is this a chronic condition or is it something that will go away as I continue climbing and get in better shape? What can I change to prevent injury?
