 photo This is a small area near `the Changwon dam' with a few decent and challenging cracks and reasonable bouldering problems in a small area below the dam. It has some scrambly overhangs 5.9-5.10, the highest only about 8-9 metres, but has provided some entertainment close to home.
(In the past it also had some swimming, but right now the dam is empty(?))
We've really only attempted the 'big' 5.9(b?) "Sunlit crack", but about 6 routes are bolted, and the 'road' (the sealed trail to the dam) comes in above it, so you can top rope most routes irf y... [Read More]

 photo **Experts Only!!** Old granite quarry has been converted to a serious sport climbing area. At least 20 routes in a horseshoe shaped quarry. Generally easier routes on the far left and gets harder as you move right. I saw one 5.10, two 5.11s and the remaining routes were 5.12 up to 5.14 (yes, really). All sports routes but some potential for trad lines on the left hand wall.... [Read More]

 photo Saeinbong, easily accessed from the Jeungshimsa entrance of Mudeungsan Provincial Park on the western edge of Gwangju, boasts two main climbing cliffs. Facing Yaksasa (temple)is Yaksa Amjang, and on the opposite side of the peak is the main wall referred to as Saeinbong.

To lead at Saeinbong, you must first rappel from the top-- there is a sturdy rap ring on the left (facing out), but the routes here are 40 meters and YOU WILL NEED 2 ROPES or to fix a single line!!--and walk along the path below (you could rap from any anchor at the top, but... [Read More]

Submitted on November 14th, 2010 by robinelijah Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeongsangnam-Do    City: Busan   
 photo 8 routes. Most climbs are vertical or barely slab, and very crimpy. Anchors are solid with hooks, not rings. Almost all the bolts are new. Not sure what type of rock. Basalt maybe?... [Read More]

Samcheonpo Sea Cliffs
Submitted on September 12th, 2010 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeongsangnam-Do    City: Sacheon   
 photo Bolted sea cliffs, with some DWS potential (but also some rocks in the water) . . . easily accessed from Sancheonpo, now assimilated into Sacheon City south of Jinju in Gyeongsangnam-do.

We were there on a pretty rainy day, and didn't try the mostly overhung, but seeping routes. Bolts and anchors looked pretty shiny. Possible TR access from the trail (well maintained) above. . . many trees to rap from.

Swimming potential (not the cleanest water) and DWS, though not so deep as one would like. Still, this rocky beach can be pretty quiet, sa... [Read More]

Add photos of Sang Bawi
Sang Bawi is a slabby dome which offers around 6 routes of up to 3 pitches in length. The bolts on the more difficult pitches are in good shape, but some of the others have extremely corroded hangers. There is at least one crack, but is covered in lichen, much like the rest of the dome.

An interesting place to check out if you like slab and are in the area.... [Read More]

Sangsa Bawi
Submitted on June 22nd, 2004 by CHOI BAWI Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeongsangnam-Do    City: Masan   
 photo Sangsa Bawi is located in Palyongsan hardly on the outskirts of Masan. There are four double pitch routes ranging in length from 40~50 meters. The easiest graded route, Gijon A, is three pitches and 62 meters, respectively. This is a granite face with mostly crimpers and overhangs. Every other bolt seems to be pretty rusty from the sea air, but at least not ill-spaced. The belay anchor points I climbed through were bomber. The features here do allow for protection in certain areas and on certain pitches.

NOTE: Gyegok Am is also in the vicini... [Read More]

Sangsa Bawi (Halmae Bawi)
Submitted on April 20th, 2006 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Jeollabuk-Do    City: Jeonju   
 photo Crumbly version of the local limestone, but slabby-vertical (the summit domes). Several bolted routes (2 pitches and a scramble-- roped-- to the summit). It's in the middle-of-farmland nowhere, but the small town life and quaint villages and farms definitely make this place worth checking out for lunch and for a drive, but not for the climbing!!

Couldn't see the anchors, but the rock was uninspiring. The routes are the main (L of the roof) face you see from the road. Don't know the grades (very broad guess).... [Read More]

Seodaemun Ansan Amjang
Submitted on November 21st, 2005 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeonggi-Do    City: Seoul   
 photo Typical Seoul granite, predominantly slab climbing, not unlike Insubong/Pukhansan "nearby". There are at least 21 one and two pitch routes, from 10 to 40 meters. Mostly solid bolts, a few old pitons, at least one artificial hold bolted on an overhanging crack. . . and 2 unbolted cracks, a 5.8 and a 2.11a.
This area is for people who LOVE Korea's granite slabs, but seek a little more privacy than Insubong offers on a Sunday. Some decent runout; many of the harder routes are pretty featureless. Dae Slab (main slab to the right) is used as a tra... [Read More]

 photo The vertical (give or take) faces, corners, roofs with numerous crack systems. . . comprising Seokmun Amjang (climbing wall) rise 8-20 meters from the small, but scenic Seokmunsan (163.3m), affording several easily protected (and several less-easily protected!) trad climbs or TRs. There are some old pitons/bolts (many rusting)-- of varying quality, but also plenty of natural pro. Since the best (by far) approach is up the back and around, I'd recommend setting up a top anchor and rapping the intended route to scope first!... [Read More]
