Over hanging, some loose rock. The clib called"mounitain 119" is called that for a reason. Skip it. its a little scary at the top.

bus 401 goes there but I don't know where it comes from??? It's behind Daegu airport. Follow the road to Palgong san, then 400m past the airport turn right and follow the signs for the 'Oriental Forest blah blah'. When you get to he forest keep going until you see the rock on your right. Maybe 10 min. from the airport.

Safety Concerns
ROCK FALL!!! Well bolted though.

Gear to Bring
12 draws will do, the anchors seem ok but, webbing never hurts.

Additional Comments
No services but a first aid kit. There is also a route map there. Not much parking.

there's also a first aid kit and a nice "open air" bathroom. . .

some interesting anchors with a continuous (not clamped) loop of metal cord through 2 hangers/bolts. . . if someone can explain this to me, please PM!!

Directions are good but need some clarifications... follow the signs for the forest.. you will turn by the airport...
We took a train to Dong Daegu Station then caught bus 401 to the airport..

from there it is about a ten minute car ride to the site which is not very noticable... I caught the anchors out of the corner of my eye while in a cab....

Locals called it Yong Am San...we had a cab driver help us... they knew about the climbing in a local convenient mart. We passed this after we turned by the airport. It was on the left some ways down the road... shortly after this there is a temple on the right and then a chance to take a right hand turn.. keep going straight and eventually you will see the climbs on the right.

Climbed there today. Decent climbing, but everything is pretty overgrown right now. I'd wait till winter to go back. Definitly a day or two worth of climbing, bolts seemed ok, besides the death triangles, but nothing a sling won't fix.

As for directions....if your driving...make the right past the airport...your first right is the airforce base...DON"T GO RIGHT. Your next right is interstate 1 and 20, DON"T GO RIGHT. 100m later, the road splits and you'll see the brown signs for the Oriental Forest...go right at the split. It will dead end in a 100 yards at the river, go right again.

Follow that road for about 10min, you'll pass the forest, then a temple, then you'll make a hard right across the river, your less then a km away....Keep an eye for a pullout with a concrete dropoff, painted white and you'll see a trail on th right....Look up and you'll see the crag.

As for the bus...it's quite easy, go to Daegu airport, then take the Red #1 bus, it goes right by the crag, for landmarks on where to get off, just follow the driving directions above.

Went to check out this crag yesterday and added a couple of things to this page. I made a map of where the crag is which wiull hopefully help people out and i took a picture of the route guide.

As for the crag, as Brian said, it gets incredibly overgrown so bring a stick or something to bash down all the plants. Beneath the foliage are some fantastic routes though so i'd recommend checking it out. The rock is nice, feels a little dodgy but nothing came off while we were there.

Dont think the crag gets much action in the summer so we had to clean a bunch of moss and creepers off some of the holds but nothing too extreme. Also, many bugs so bring repellant or get bitten!
