15 meters high: slightly-less than vertical, vertical, overhanging and near-roof routes. Boramae was one of 8 parks in Seoul to be renovated with climbing walls and other public use facilities as part of a city wide parks master plan.

The wall is gated, and unlike many walls you can join this one or pay a W1000 use fee.

Looks almost the same as Danggogae, but the roof covers a wee bit more on top.

Open 10:00-21:00.

There is a W1,000 per-use fee (memberships available) and a liability waiver to be signed (in Korean, of course).

Dongjak-gu, Shindaebang-2 dong 395; in the X-games section of Boramae Park (보라매공원).

Boramae Station on the green line. City busses: blue 105, 505; green 5531, 5623, 5633, 5536; red 5601; Dongjak village bus 05.

Additional Comments
Other foreigners and Koreans I met there rented harnesses/shoes for a nominal fee.

Easy access to food and amenities; cool looking (to a non-skater)skate park right next to the wall.

Viewing area, but not a lot of shade. I went on a holiday when there was a bit of a crowd, but no shortage of belay offers!

For more information (in Korean) contact Kim Byung-tae 019-683-0012 [email protected] or Jang Seok-hwan 016-9316-7168 [email protected]

price is now 5,000 won a day. includes harness and shoe rental. official open date is april 1st (depends on the weather) the woman that runs the wall also has a bouldering center nearby (http://club.cyworld.com/club/main/club_main.asp?club_id=52662213) she speaks NO english but a few of the members speak a little..

oh yeah, membership is 60,000 won a month for use of the outdoor wall and the bouldering center. there are 3 foreign members (myself included) so if you want to give it a go, check out their cyworld site or contact me if you need to know anything else..

I just went this morning, and the lady that runs the wall says it's open at 11am on weekdays because no one shows up earlier than that. However, the wall is open from 10am on weekends.

We spent three hours there this morning and had a good time. There was an older guy and the buff lady who appears to run the place. The wall is in fairly good shape. There is not much in the way of real beginner routes but the 5.8 routes were decent. There are a couple of fun dihedrals although the harder one on the right peters out about three quarters of the way up; no holds. None of the holds spun on me but a couple did look sketchily attached. We got to watch the buff lady self-belay herself up to set up a rope. Gri-gri evidently have lots of uses...

The charge was 1000 won per person; we brought all our own gear. The north face was appreciated since it was hot (August). We were the only ones on the wall from 1000-1230. Definitely worth the trip.

I found the owner of Boramae to be very helpful. For 5000 won, she will give you 2 belays on top top, for those who do not have rope or belay partner.

For 2000 won, you can climb as much as you want. She has harnesses you can borrow, but not shoes.

Great experience for those looking to get a climb in while travelling to Korea. Definitely worth the trip.

It's free if you have belay device, rope (at least 35m), harness, and shoes, and a partner.
