I just went to Club Shamony today. The overhear map was a little confusing to me and I'm a very good map reader. The golf store is now a Columbia store. If you get in the vicinity Look for the big light blue Columbia sign and downstairs you'll find Club Shamony.
The gym is relatively small, but I'm a beginner so it should do me just fine. There ware a few levels of difficulty that I saw that may cater to a more experienced climber.
The club does not have rental shoes. You have to bring, at a minimum, shoes and chalk to climb.
I didn't get the impression they had a pay per visit system either. They only spoke of registration and the 60,000₩ monthly fee.
I happened to luck up and go on a day where a member present was a good English speaker. If he wasn't there . . . it would've been exponentially more challenging. He did say there were other foreign patrons.
All skill levels were present and watching the gym's best climber and coach was . . . WOW. Those two were VERY talented.

|Forgot about this tidbit. Club Shamony is only open M-F from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm. On the weekends they coordinate climbs for the group members at a local mountain. No information on whether or not you need to be a member to climb on the weekends.|

|I wonder if this place is still open, I went and it was closed. I hope he didn't close for the winter?|

|I went there last night and it is in fact open. It is a small gym but like said before everyone there is very nice. They have their holds color and number coded for traverse routes. I found one spinner, everything else was solid. I'll be a frequent costumer... also, I have him 10,000 won and didn't see change, maybe the prices went up?|
