HOURS:
7:30am-midnight, Everyday


Directions
SUYU subway station line 4. Leave the station via exit 5. Walk a block down the street to the Huge intersection. Turn right at the corner and cross the street. Enter the small street directly in front of you (it's the street that is at a 90 degree angle from the street with the subway station) and walk one-two blocks. On the RIGHT hand side of the street you'll see a red brick building with an Alley in front of it. It has a white sign that says Climbing Academy. There is a yellow sign below the climbing academy sign. The entrance faces the alley on the right side of the building. gym is in the basement.

Climbing Academy
Kangbuk-gu, Suyu 3-dong 134-8

This is Chung Seung Kwan's gym. Mr. Chung is away a bit, leading Koreans up Yosemite Big Walls every year. He has summitted Everest and placed 2nd in ice-climbing in the X-Games, oh in '98 or '99.
He speaks decent English and gives ice-climbing lessons seasonally.

New hours: Monday through Friday, 2pm to 11pm.

Definitely friendly atmosphere--especially once the regulars have seen you a few times.

I just went looking for this place and couldn't find it. Can anyone confirm if it still exists? It looks great, and the prices are pretty good. I'd love to check it out!
