Su-U-do Multipitch, Sept. 4 & 5

We called off the last trip we'd planned to Su-U on account of rain. Here's hoping we'll have better luck this time. As I'm short on time, I'll recap what I said about Su-U in June by using a little o' the old copy-n-paste:

The crag's located on a south-facing wall above a shallow cove on the eastern shore of the island. The cove itself is filled with turquoise waters occasionally visited by schools of iridescently coloured fish (I swear I'm not making this up) and is a great place to swim in between climbs.

As far as climbing's concerned, from what I remember, the wall runs two to three pitches high and hosts climbs ranging from 5.9 through 5.12. All routes are bolted and include anchor stations, although I can't remember exactly how these are set up (it's been a couple of years since I've visited the island and I haven't managed to track down any links to Korean sites with the relevant info.

Attached you'll find a snapshot of the island's location on Google Earth and below, a link to the island in Google Maps:

Here's a map of Su U and route maps for three of the island's crags. Could make for a great weekend.

Should make for a great weekend, so if you're keen on coming with, reply here to let me know.

There's no climbing on Su-u-do. Only goats, trees and inbred locals, who stroke your foreign face as you get off the boat. Then tie you, naked, to a tree on the harbour as they light big torches and dance around you in ever decreasing circles, before smearing your body in sea urchin juice.

Only joking. But don't expect much in the way of tourist information and try to find a way to get hold of a boat to get to the climbs. Otherwise, it could involve some risky blind abseils.

Yandy! Welcome back. Any thoughts on how to delete/correct a thread? I botched the dates on the Su U trip. Should have read the 11th and 12th. Keen on making the trip down for that weekend?

Well, Damn, make up your mind, but I am in either way^^ The only way I've found to change a thread's title or delete is to PM Eric. He is the big E.
