Looking for Ice Partners Mar 18-Apr 1
Hello: I'm an experienced Rock/Ice/Alp Climber. I'll be in Kr, based in Seoul Mar 18-April 1. I would like to do both outdoor and indoor (what a novelty!) ice. Never been to Kr before, might be coming here quite often from now on.

-Is there any ice that's still in outdoors?
-Who wants to go climbing with me?
-Where do I find more partners for ice?
-What do I have to bring/what should I rent?

Bruce mate, I think you'll be outta luck for outdoor ice - unless there is some still up in the NE corner - but I'll check. Indoor is a good enough substitute, though it gets kinda crowded on weekends. Weekdays are usually very uncrowded at O2 Ice Gym. If I've got time off I'd be in for a session, and there are a few others who'd be up for ice too. At O2 you can rent pretty much everything, but you may as well bring your harness, belay tool and helmet at least. Late March through to June is prime rock season here in Korea too, and if you like some trad, there is a magnificent trad area called Insubong just near O2 Ice Gym (hike in is aboutt 50mins from O2 but same bus/ subway start). No need to haul a trad rack, I think you'd find a partner no worries. I'll be working Sat 21 March, but should be free the weekend after, and maybe on Fridays also.

partners, no problem!
Bruce, you'll have a buffet of keen and passionate climbers when you arrive! Ice is out almost already. It is getting warmer as we speak. I know of at least 30 people who make it out to climb every weekend, albeit scattered over the country. My boyfriend lives in Seoul and he (we) is (are) always looking for other partners! Bring your rock rack.

you can catch another glimse of climbing in Korea on my blog.
