PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Rock climbing made its debut in the Olympic Games for the first time in history this week.
There are three disciplines in rock climbing: you have a traditional lead — which is your normal climbing — bouldering and speed-climbing.
To get a better idea of what these athletes are up against, Emily Burris and Travis Teich went over to Planet Granite in the Pearl District to put themselves to the test with a little friendly competition.
