People to climb with near Seoul

Hello KOTR climbing community,

I have a freelance job starting in Seoul in the first week of June, but will be arriving on the 21st May. This gives me a few weeks to at least get familiarised with some climbing walls and maybe get to experience Korean rock. The problem is I don't know any climbers in Korea. Would anyone be interested in meeting up to go climbing? I am a little obsessed with climbing and am finding it very hard to imagine going weeks without a climb especially in a country where there is so much to be had!

Sam (Bristol, UK)

I have been looking for someone to climb with too! I am in the heart of seoul and have been here for three months with not one climb yet! I am dying to get out and hit some walls/rocks.

3 months without a climb, my heart goes out to you! The solution I think would be a session on an artificial wall early next week. If you give me your number via personal messages, I'll call you on the weekend. I arrive at Incheon airport on Friday and will need a few days to land.

Samw and climber420 - I climb most days in Seoul (in the evenings at K2, sometimes Ttukseom climbing wall) and there are always people climbing in and around Seoul on the weekend!

Send me a pm if you fancy meeting up at any point!

I've arrived in Seoul and will be ready to climb next month.
Have to purchase sheitloads of furniture for the apartment and might end up short on cash.

Which climbing opportunity is closest to noksapyeong?
