Pads: A number of online climbing stores in the USA do international shipping for about 25 bucks so go explore that possibility.
I agree, every mountain I've been to has at least 1 boulder.
Insubong is alright. the problem is it takes forever to get there cause of the subway, bus, and you have to go up this steep *** hill. It is crazy. By the time you get there you are tired and hungry.
Plus there is human poo everywhere next to the boulders. All the campers go up next to the boulders and let it loose. No good. We stepped in a bunch this weekend. Plus you can't see it cause of the leaves
