|This place is awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It reminds me of a smaller version of Tahquitz, CA. If you enjoy trad and crack climbing this place offers a lot of variety with face climbing mixed in. Bawijaengi covers all the details and this place is extremely easy to get to. We went on a wednesday and the crowds were very low and managable.|

|I thought this place was great also. The climbs were smoother and more runout than I expected though. Also, there are many well stocked climbing gear shops in the Deungsan Jangbe shopping area near the Dodaemun subway stop. The shops there carried all US and European name brands in climbing hardware, rock shoes and clothing.|

|Bawijaengi, you are right, and thanks for putting the post about not playing the "idiot foreigner" card. Any idea how to get in touch with the clubs to get the permission? Thanks|

|[URL="http://www.powerclimbing.org/amgong/in/insu.htm"]This[/URL] is probably the best online route guide. It's in Korean, but pretty easy to follow. . . 크랙=crack, 슬랩=slab, 페이스=face, 위주=chimney, 오버행=overhang, 인공등=aid, 볼트길=bolt ladder, 퀵드로= quickdraw (usually folowed by the #) 프렌드= friends (camalots will work:p ). You can click on individual routes for more specifics. Print out the route(s) you want and go!|

you can also take buses 120 and 109.
theres a free bus up to the temple at the start of the trailhead.
In addition the guys at the ranger station are really nice and in my case actually took us up to the mountain and climbed with us

Temple bus is not free, it cost 500 won or whatever you want to 'donate'

if you catch the 153 bus at the center median in front of the Lotteria, it will take you directly to Ui-dong neighborhood. you get off immediately after the roundabout. secondly, if you walk up the road that heads uphill, right across from the bus station, taxis will charge you 1000 won ($1, give or take a little) to take you half way up. the only thing is you usually have to wait for them to get a full car, but that doesn't usually take more than 5-10 minutes.
or if you meet your climbing team at suyu station, you can catch a taxi directly to ui-dong and then ask the driver to take you all the way up. this usually doesn't end up costing more than 7000. so split between a few people, it's likely cheaper and definitely faster than the busses.

|There's no potable water at the Ranger station. Bring a filter or pack in bottles.|

|Please, stop by the ranger station at the base of the mountain if you are not 100% sure of the name of the route you are going to climb. My friend broke his leg on a route that Koreans told me was pronounced "Go-Deok-Gil" but the Park Rangers knew it only as "Go-Dok-Gil"...so it took almost 3 hours to get to us. If you haven't been before stop there first, they will walk you to the route and tell you the name.|
