what's the best approach to kwanaksan

Does anyone know what the most direct approach to kwanaksan/gwanaksan is? I was looking on the map http://www.koreaontherocks.com/climb..._nav=1&s ort= and it seems the location is actually closer to Seoul University but the approach directions start at the middle school over the kwanaksan ridge southeast of the actual location by some distance. Is there a faster and more direct route to this climb from Seoul University or even from Seoksu station from the west?

it's pretty much just across the river from the main hiking trail. . . i cannot imagine a faster r better approach, as it's just a skip and jump from the main hiking trail. If there is a aster and quicker approach. . . it's ertainlyly ot as easy to explain or as direct. If you find one or know f one, please add it.. . but this direction is pretty clear and easy to get to. It's on the main hiking trail and right off public transportation! If you find a better route, please add it !! If not. . . hey, this is a nice urban crag!

That map is pretty useless, but the photos of the signs on the trail are super useful. The directions otherwise are spot on. The approach is about a solid 25 minutes from the subway. Good for a couple of days per season but no more I would guess.
