Description
The rock is a bit crap, compressed sedimentary but my geology is pretty weak. Hard enough not to panic though. It is conveniently located near the city. there are 20+ routes and you can trad the rock but it has been set up for sport. Some hard overhang but most of the routes are rather short. 10 meters a couple at about 15+ meters.


Directions
Bus #603, from downtown in front of the Outback steakhouse heading North bound. Take until the end of the line then walk about 1 Km, over the bridge, follow the river as if the bus was continuing along the river road.


Safety Concerns
Really suspect bolting and the worlds scariest archor set up. Single braided steal wire crimped in a death triange with a tow(car) hook for the clip in.
Some loose rocks, wear a helmet even when top roping.
Other climbers are an absolute menace and huge hazard.


Gear to Bring
Bring it all but you can do fine with a couple of lockers cordellete and a set of 8 draws. 50 metere rope more than enough for all of the climbs.


Additional Comments
All accessible even a rather nice toliet just bring the wipe. You can even order food at the base of the crag, tong su yook for 4. Just bring some water and a little snack.

What would you say to a taxi driver?

Also, is this place pronounced "Young Young"?

Comment added by antepater on May 13th, 2004
most of the climbs are above 5.9, a lot in the 5.10a,b,c but in my opinion they are a little inflated, + 1 grade.
there is another area for the hardman in you with some absolutley fu#@ing torcherouse 5.11-5.12's
Pronuciation: yeah say Young-young, if you can read hanguel it's easier.
If you have a tourist map of Daegu. find the Chimsan-gyo( chimsan bridge)directly north of downtown, near where the river forks. the climbing is along the Dongwacheon River on the other side of the main express way(the #1}. Past the athletes village. The area in Dongbyeon-dong.

FYI: This climbing area is not called "Young-young", but "Doyakdae". Doyakdae is located in Yeon-gyeong Dong(연경동). Doyakdae is comprised of five sections: Doyakdae, Yong Bawi I, Yong Bawi II, Ssang Bawi, and Go Bawi. Although I was only able to spot and count thirty-two routes, this area apparently boasts fifty-two routes.

For those of us coming in from out of town and arriving via train to Daegu Station, take the underpass from Daegu Station and exit onto "Jung-angro" or "중앙로". You will be facing in the direction of the oncoming traffic with your back to Daegu Station. Walk roughly two hundred meters until you come to the second obvious bus stop. Catch Bus #603 here. This bus runs every twelve minutes. The ride is anywhere from an hour to hour and a half to the end of the line which is Yeon-gyoeng. From the bus stop, follow the obvious shallow river, known as “Donghwa Cheon” or “동화천”, up stream for roughly ten minutes until you reach “Wanggom Sikdang” or “왕곰식당”, here you will see the small bridge and road that lead to the obvious. Check out the pics and everything should be easy as pie.

NOTE: Yeon-geyong Dong is an obscure area. It’s very likely that the cab drivers and information centers will have problems finding it. Also, it is not easy to hail cabs from Yeon-gyeong Dong unless you call one in.

Here is ome more beta on Yeon-gyeong or Doyahkdae if you're into climbing some harder stuff, say 5.11+ routes; apparently, if you hike in farther past the first and more popular area about ten more minutes, there is more climbing. But, don't take my word for it. This is just what I heard recently from a Daegu local. Good luck!

Paid a visit to this crag last night and it seems as though theres been some redevelopment recently.
The bottom of the crag is now graveled and floodlights have been installed for night climbing. As far as i could tell, the routes are all still the same and theres been no development in terms of bolts or anchors.

Great spot, would highly recommend it.

this post is old, so to update: yeah Josh-- floodlights have been installed (so locals no longer bring noisy generators) for night climbing. The restaurant with the nice bathrooms has been closed for over a year, but they've brought in one rank port-a-let (the temple 5 minutes or so away has nice bathrooms). The rock is solid-- in 15 or so trips over the last 13 years, I've never seen rockfall. The bus that passes now is Buk-bu bus 2, which goes by Daegu Station. Get off just past Taewonsa (temple). . . I believe the stop is called Taewonsa. Never a bad idea to call 053)1330 for English info in Daegu, or stop at a toursit info center for up-to-date bus info. There are over 50 routes, from 5.7 to 5.13a. Lots of easy to moderates (5.9-10 range) but enough for all but the baddest-asses.
