Submitted on March 22nd, 2008 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeongsangnam-Do    City: Sacheon   
 photo Granite rock, one and two pitches, slabby to vertical, with roofs, bulges. . . there are several crags, so follow the trail around. Some of the cracks could (and should!) take some extra pro-- nuts and cams-- to rule out decking potential and to supplement some old pitons. . . most of the bolts looked good, but some succumbed to rust and some of the cracks are sparsely bolted (or have old pitons)....

Wimungongyeon Bawi
Submitted on September 20th, 2005 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Jeollabuk-Do    City: Jeonju   
 photo Slab to overhanging. Good rock, decent bolts (typical triangle webbing anchors for the most part). Numerous routes. Wimungongyeon Bawi (on the main path from the small entrance) is labled in fading paint as are the climbs(8 on this face); the easiest, 10a, is labeled "Wimungong" (4 bolts). The first route here is 3 pitches, but the rest are 13 meters. A sport rack would suffice unless you're out to explore the area. A trad rack would really open up possibilities nearby. As you head uptrail towards the Chilseongbong Observation platform, you'll ... [Read More]

 photo Granite slabs, faces and overhangs. There are 29 listed routes of up to 3 pitches, some with slight variations. There are no grades listed, but range from easy decently bolted slabs to overhanging cracks and aid. Fixed pro is a mixed bag. . . shiny new bolts, rusty old bolts, old pitons, fixed cams, slings. . . many cracks require and others take gear of pretty much all sizes! Many routes have beefy eye-bolts cemented in at the belay/rap stations.

The climbing is on Maebong (매봉), Sirubong (시루봉), Sajabong (... [Read More]

 photo The rock is a bit crap, compressed sedimentary but my geology is pretty weak. Hard enough not to panic though. It is conveniently located near the city. there are 20+ routes and you can trad the rock but it has been set up for sport. Some hard overhang but most of the routes are rather short. 10 meters a couple at about 15+ meters.... [Read More]

Submitted on October 10th, 2006 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gangwon-Do    City: Chuncheon   
 photo Beautiful and remote setting in Northern Kangwondo. . . not so far from the North Korean border. . .Nice granite; lots of friction but some loose bits and hollow sounding flakes.

Saenam and Jangsu Bawis (the main formations) offer 16 routes up to 5 pitches from 5.7 (easiest P1 is 5.8) to 5.12; also some aid. There's a stellar 11b roof on the right 3 pitches up!! (Almost worth it to come for this; you could easily rap to the start from the hiking trail that goes around to the summit. Wicked exposure and views. Routes to 130 meters.

Routes... [Read More]

Yongseo Pokpo
Submitted on October 4th, 2005 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Jeollanam-Do    City: Gurye   
 photo One of the most beautiful and quiet places I have been in Korea. Very little traffic (local?) and very off the beaten path! You stand in an ampitheatre around a very high falls (50m?), surrounded by steep bluffs on 3 sides. The rock is multicolored, the landscape lush. Slab (slight), vertical, roofs, overhangs, faces, (bolted) cracks. . . you'll bust out all your moves here! 7-26 meters (though there are multipitch climbs that will get you higher, and if you aspire to do them 2 ropes might be nice for a quick rappel). Bolts seemed solid, though... [Read More]

 photo The type of rock is varied , as are the types of climbs. Some begin as slab and end up overhanging and, vice versa. There are a few multi-pitch climbs here and some are regular climbs that are 32 meters so tie a knot in the end of your rope. The bolts are changed on a regular basis but the 'pig tails' suck....
