I'm in.
I will be bringing:
-a rope
-10 draws
- A one person tent (or two person if someone's willing to be the big spoon).
I don't know what I should bring for food though. There's isn't a huge slection of foreign foods here in Mokpo. Any suggestions, requests.

if you live in Wonju!

a little favor to ask of anyone living in Wonju. . . could you go to the train/bus station and get a timetable of trains/busses to/from Wonju (if there are busses from Wonju to somewhere, then there are equal number the other way). . . no worries if your Korean isn't great, if you take a digital photo of the timetables and send them to me or post them in this thread, I or someone else will translate them. From Wonju there are at least 5 trains and 6 busses (at least) to Kanhyun, or folks can call for a ride/cab it out. . .

Logistics

Note: trains to Kanhyon/Wonju are on the Donghae0Nanbu Line and the Taebaek Line, which primarily serve the E/SE areas of the country. Some useful routes/train numbers times include:

Andong-Wonju 1640 02:11-04:49 1622 08:00-10:46 1092 10:00-12:22 1624 12:00-14:43 1652 13:20-16:34 1094 14:30-16:53 1630 15:45-18:38 1626 17:00-19:46 1628 19:00-21:41
Andong-Kanhyun 1622 08:00-11:00 165213:20-16:51

1640 Ulsan-Wonju 23:28-04:49
This train actually starts in Busan (Bujeon: 22:15, Haeundae Station at 22:30) and passes through Gyeongju at 00:05 for South Easterners who get off late on Fri-- hint: bring an alarm clock and earphones?! You can always crash a few hours when you get to the M and G or at a cchimchilbang in Wonju.

Cheongnyangni-Kanhyun 1651 06:50-08:55 166912:00-13:49 1625 15:00-16:40
1655 16:15-18:16 1657 19:00-21:02 1673 22:00- 23:39

Trains for Kanhyun leave Wonju at 1658 05:10 1656 06:41 1666 09:03 162210:47 1668 11:49 1652 16:35 1672 19:17.

If you’re going to Seoul Station, you’ll have to bus/taxi or subway (9 stops) to Cheongnyangni Station. Busses may be a better option altogether. Below is a non-comprehensive list.

The Wonju Inner-city Bus terminal is about 15 minutes N of Wonju Station by foot, or a cheap cab ride. Innercity Busses go to E Seoul every 10 minutes, Sangbong 14 times a day, Chuncheon 10 minute intervals all day taking 40 minutes, Gangneung 30 times a day, Sokcho 8 times a day taking 4 hours, Cheongju at 20 minute intervals and taking 2h40, Daejeon every 30 minutes taking 3h20, Daegu and Busan 10 times a day each, taking 2h30/4hours respectively. And of course, busses leave Jeonju at 9&11AM, 2&4PM and take about 4h20 to get to Wonju.

The Express Bus Terminal is SW of the train station. . . almost worth getting a taxi to Kanhyon from there. Express busses run from Seoul all day in 15 minute intervals and take 1h30, from Gangneung every 40 minutes and take the same, and from Gwangju in 1:15 minute intervals taking 4 hours.

Local public transportation: (city bus between Wonju and Kanhyon-ri comes every hour-- it runs in front of (slightly left-- an obvious bus stop) Wonju Station (but not by the bus terminal, though I’ve heard rumors of service starting? anyone?!). It takes about 25 minutes to Kanhyon.

A taxi from Wonju runs about W15,000.

The resort is a 10 minute walk from Kanhyon Station. . . everyone leaving the train will pretty much be heading there!

Air : Wonju Airport (flights between Cheju and Wonju 11:20; 70 minutes-- if Dan is ambitious!)

Drivers: Yeongdong Highway, exit the highway at Munmak IC. - take National road 42 to Wonju (Northeast)- 4.3km ;Turn left -cross Donghwa Bridge and take county road 88. Pass a small hill on and drive 1km more until you arrive at Jijeong Elementary School and Gyeongjanggyo under a steel bridge. Keep going straight for 2.4km, to the entrance of Kanhyon.

If you want to get a minbak, there are now many in the resort, but some are quite a distance from the climbing. These are some good ones close to the climbing: http://ganhyun.co.kr/, http://www.kanhyun.com/ , http://www.ganhyun.com/ Just after the last drivable bridge is: http://www.kanhyun.co.kr/ You might want to call/have someone call and make reservations. Not much English spoken.

For information/maps/photos of everthing from the climbing to the restaurants and noraebangs, but alas only in Korean, go to: http://myhome.naver.com/kanhyundisc/index.htm

See you guys there. The 00.05 train through Gyeongju sounds perfect for me. Hope I can get back to Pohang that easily.
Sorted for camping gear but whats the deal with food? Is it a group thing? will try to bring along something if thats the case.
See you guys there.
