New Route at Mureung

Mureung Valley Byeong Pung Am

"Commitment Issues" : 20m (5.10b?) trad

Between climbs "1" and "2" - Left hand side of crag, just before you turn corner for "route 1", start at two trees close together.

A couple of easy slab moves lead to big horizontal break, mantle this to gain small crimps above and good finger crack.
Follow good finger crack straight up until it fades out, make technical move from a pebble and thin sidepull to a good edge / sloper then move up and left through overhang and easier ground to big tree.

Belay / lower from big tree (great view!)

Should anyone repeat this; please let us know what you think!

Enjoy,

Gareth and 이 은경

commitment issues

There came an impressive moment when Gareth sent it after mental tries on the crux for several times.
Balanced technical move leads to one of the beautiful belay points at Mureung.
The gears on the crux are bomber. Good rest on the trees. Tricky maybe for shorter people like me!(160cm)
Nice fun, very rewarding route!!

Is this "au natural"?!

oh yes, (filthy) trad all the way! - nah, it's actually pretty clean now, and we removed a nice big scary chuck of rock from near the top, so pretty safe really,and good gear all the way too!
