Geojin Wall
Submitted on May 27th, 2010 by jason in Sokcho Type: Artificial Walls    Province: Gangwon-Do    City: Sokcho   
 photo Large outdoor wall on the coast with a sea view. Almost new, and a good all round wall. The wall is broken down into a vertical section where most of the route is vertical, however with 3-4 small where overhangs exist. There is another section that is a high grade and holds continued and sustained overhang moves for the whole climb with a mix of holds to challenge strong climbers. The wall height is around 20 Metres.... [Read More]

Submitted on September 21st, 2005 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gangwon-Do    City: Sokcho   
 photo Overhanging granite face (with some features/cracks); all routes on the "red face" require significant aid climbing (OK, one was freed by Son Chung-Jun and Son Sang-Won), though primarily AO bolt ladders. It's overhanging and very exposed. Bolts and anchors are solid and slings seem to be changed fairly regularly, but the routes are used often and the slings are "aided on", so some extra slings and a knife might not be a bad idea.

There are 4 routes on the face, from left to right, 1) KyoDae "take turns" p1 12b/AO,25m p2 AO bolt ladder,30m p... [Read More]

 photo this place is basically a huge maunfactured ice wall. some folks have taken the time to rig a piping system that takes water from a nearby river to form a huge waterfall over a 60-70m rock face. in the winter, this waterfall freezes into some fat ice for some rad climbing.... [Read More]

Seorakdong Campground Bouldering Wall
Submitted on February 16th, 2012 by skinsk Type: Artificial Walls    Province: Gangwon-Do    City: Sokcho   
 photo A sheltered outdoor wall in the Seorak-dong Campground (a couple kilometers east of the main entrance to Seoraksan), it's convenient for visitors to the park (especially if you're camping here!) and residents of Sokcho.... [Read More]

Shilso Falls

 photo this place has 15 m climbs on a very nice line of ice. the quoted name may be inaccurate, but it's upposed to translate as 'thread falls' owing to the narrowness of the ice line.... [Read More]

Sokcho Climbing Wall
Submitted on July 21st, 2011 by skinsk Type: Artificial Walls    Province: Gangwon-Do    City: Sokcho   
 photo Near the Municipal Stadium in central Sokcho, the wall was deserted and seemingly neglected when we visited. That said, if you maybe brought a wrench for some twirly-holds, the wall would suffice.

The wall is about 16 meters, but so overhanging at points the longest routes are 18 meters.

I suppose with Seorak at it's doorstep, people in Sokcho don't hang out at an artificial wall much.... [Read More]

The General (Janggun Bong)
Submitted on October 9th, 2006 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gangwon-Do    City: Sokcho   
 photo High friction granite with plenty of features and a killer view (well, in the event it is clear. . . otherwise the mist hugs the mountains like a watercolor. . . ) Slabs, faces, cracks, chimneys, roofs. . . most routes have it all. Eleven 2-8 pitch climbs are established on the SW face. The easiest 1st pitches are 20m 5.4 (barely and unprotected) 60 degree slabs. . . but the General is best for those who want a moderate-hard multi-pitch adventure. The easiest way to the summit is the ridgeline, which includes 5.1-5.7 pitches. Plenty of bail opt... [Read More]
