BAEKUN DAE
Submitted on September 19th, 2006 by CHOI BAWI Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeonggi-Do    City: Seoul   
 photo There are three main areas to climb at Baekeun Dae, Baekun Dae Slab, NW Face and NW Face Upper Section. Baekun Dae is typical slabby granite with crack lines, traversy dikes lines and the sort. Baekun Slab is primarily used as an instructive top-roping crag during the weekends by several climbing clubs. There is a variety of cracks and slab in this area ranging from 5.6 to 5.9 in difficulty. The Baekun NW Headwall has an upper and lower area. The routes range from 5.6 to 5.10/A0 in difficulty....

Byeongpung Am, Bukhansan
Submitted on October 10th, 2006 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeonggi-Do    City: Seoul   
 photo Granite slab with cracks and flakes up to 4 pitches. . . many routes require some aid. Byeongpung Am was developed from 1960-1970, mostly, with the right-most route put in 1990.

Some runout seems even worse due to sketchy pro and hollow sounding flakes.... [Read More]

 photo I really don't know the grades because I don't know all the boulders or lines. I think the rock is mostly granite. Some of this is high-balling.

There are at least 2 good boulders on the main trail (names unknown, but one was said to be 5.9 = VB or V0). But I found boulders all over the place, so have fun exploring.

As you find projects, add your beta to this post. The more, the better. Thanks.... [Read More]

Submitted on May 16th, 2004 by CHOI BAWI Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeonggi-Do    City: Seoul   
 photo Insubong is a magnificent granite peak that rests in the heart of Seoul. It boasts fifty- eight routes up to date. Routes are primarily slab and cracks with a few face and chimney climbs in between. Climbs range from one to eight pitches. The highest graded route is My Way(5.12b).... [Read More]

Insubong (Campsite Boulders)
Submitted on January 28th, 2006 by fitzelq Type: Bouldering    Province: Gyeonggi-Do    City: Seoul   
 photo The rock here consists of a worn granite, not smoothed by glaciation, but sharp with crystals. Some boulders sport bomber edges, some boulders beg serious cleaning time in order to remove the crumbly dirt and crust encasing some of the holds. But everything you want is here, from overhung roofs, highball scare-fests, dynos, V11 testpieces, excellent slabs, fun and interesting warm-ups and plenty of exploring and adventure -- all placed just beneath Insu Peak, and scattered around a quant Buddhist temple. It can be a bit noisy and you will de... [Read More]

Seonin Bong
Submitted on June 22nd, 2004 by CHOI BAWI Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeonggi-Do    City: Seoul   
 photo Seoninbong is very similar in style and variety to its neighboring peak Insubong. Seoninbong has over thirty-one routes, and is primarily slab and crack with an assortment of face, chimney, face and overhang climbing. The average route is four to six pitches in length. The longest, Yodel Buttress, is eight pitches. The hardest, Gangjeok Crack(5.12c) is two pitches. Seoninbong is considered the harder of the two for obvious reasons--IT IS.... [Read More]

SUMEUN BYEOK
Submitted on September 19th, 2006 by CHOI BAWI Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Gyeonggi-Do    City: Seoul   
 photo All of the routes of Sumeun Byeok were developed by the Corean Alpine Club. Sumeun Byeok has seven routes ranging from 5.8 ~ 5.11b and A0, the most difficult route, S5, is 5.11b and A0 in difficulty. The longest routes, S6 & S7, are 75M in length. The routes are primarily all crack. Sumeun Byeok lays hidden between the NW ridges of Baekeun Dae and Insu Ridge, hence, Sumeun Byeok or Hidden Wall. The main headwall is the SW Face. The style of climbing is primarily all crack with some slab sections in between. Due to the approach, this area is far... [Read More]
