Bagaji Bawi is all granite, some of it is solid and some is a little crumbly. There are about 2 dozen climbs here. One 5.8, three 5.9, twelve 5.10 and seven 5.11 climbs. Most of the climbs are under 30 meters though there are a few where a 60 meter rope is required.
One the left side of the wall there are a few slab climbs. As you move toward the right side of the wall there are some overhanging and face climbs.
Some of the bolts are a little old. Some of the rock a little rotten. Be careful on the right side of the wall. Lots of f... [Read More]
Natural ice fall approximately 45M with an anchor at the top and several trees to also build anchors from. This ice fall is not climbed too often due to the scrambly approach and lack of variety in climbing. There is a little bit of potential dry-tooling to the right of the main fall.... [Read More]

The second area has a multi-pitch climb. The first pitch is a mix of slab/face and is rated about 5.9. The seco... [Read More]
Hwangjeok OB Slab is strictly granite slab with a few flakes and minor cracks. The quality of granite is excellent for slab climbing.The quality of the bolts are good. Anchors are safely threaded with clamped tight steel cables. There are four standard double-pitch routes in which the farthest two routes two-fold from atop the first pitch. The length of the routes are roughly twenty meters per pitch; both pitches could be climbed with a fifty meter rope. The climbs become progressively more difficult the farther left one moves from the right.... [Read More]
This is a small wall, about 10-15 meters high and 20 meters wide. The ice on the gently sloping side is thick and solid. On the left hand side there are more interesting features to play around on if the ice is present.
You can fix anchors at the top of the climbs by hiking around the falls. At best 4-5 ropes could be climbed at the same cramped time.... [Read More]
