GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO) -- A new extreme sport that combines rock climbing and gymnastics is hitting the Grand Valley.
It's called parkour -- a trend that is popular in Europe -- that involves things like climbing walls, leaping from buildings and ledges, and flipping over obstacles on the ground.
Several Mesa State College students launched a parkour club. They say it makes getting around campus a little more exciting.
"Everything can and will be considered an obstacle on our minds," says Kevin Reid, President of the Mesa State Parkour and Free Running Club. "It's about going from point A to point B in the most efficient way possible."
The club has about 20 members. Organizers say they've even traveled to Denver to find obstacles to climb. Parkour is legal as long as the people doing it aren't trespassing.
