Description
This is only a small gym - mostly bouldering with a couple 30ft walls. Bouldering grades are marked in Yosemite, ranging from 5.8 to 5.13c. Routes (lead or top-rope) are not marked. You can usually find all the equipment you need there, from shoes and harnesses to ropes and draws. Bring your own shoes/harness to be safe.

There is a full gym there (weights, machines, tonnes of cardio equipment), and for a bit of extra cash you can use the whole gym. The cost for only climbing is 50,000 WON per month, 60,000 WON for the whole gym. Day rate is around 5,000 WON.

There is also a good community there - the gym is run by seasoned climbers, and many of the regulars are also climbers. The owner speaks some English as does some of the staff.


Directions
Near the HomeEver in Shinbang-dong/Ssangyong-dong. Relatively close to Chowon Apartments (just up the hill from Chowon Apt.) and right beside a middle school. If you can find the WA Bar there, then you're about 100m away.

In Korean, the address is:
파워 스포츠 센터
충남 천안시 신방동 72-6 (신방현대프라자2층)

We went to this gym in mid-April 2008. The owner/manager?, Yoon MyungSuk,was quite friendly and even let us climb for an extra hour.

The gym is usually open until 2300. We paid 5,000 won each.

Additionally, the gym has a Korean website at http://cafe.daum.net/powerclimb. There are photos and videos but you need a Daum Net password to access these pages.
