moving to busan nov 18 - bouldering?

hey guys! soooo, i'm leaving raleigh, nc on nov 18th to begin my 1 year in busan. i would love to start climbing and meeting the climbing community immediately, if possible. from what i've read on the forum so far, there's a pretty good bouldering crew in busan, and i'm super interested in meeting up. i also sport climb plenty, but i figured with the cold weather coming upon us, i'll spend the rest of the season mostly bouldering.

i'm going to be living pretty close to pusan national university, and if anyone else is living in that area, i was wondering if you could recommend your gym of choice. i see that there's no shortage of bouldering gyms in busan, but i'd like to go somewhere that i can meet you guys.

a little about me: i guess i've been climbing for a total of 2 years now, but only regularly for about a year and a half. i've worked at a climbing gym since april, and it's probably been the most fun for the worst paycheck i've ever had. i boulder somewhere around v4 and sport climb somewhere around 5.11. most of my climbing has been done at the new river gorge, though i've spent some time at the red river gorge, pilot mountain, and bouldering all over boone. i'm coming with a rope but no draws. sadly, though i have a totally sweet pro deal right now, I DON'T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY ANYTHING. YAYYYYY ROCK GYMS!

okay, this is long. hope to meet you all soon!

yes, we do have great bouldering crew in busan. I personally only do bouldering. I do sport sometime, but only when I can't boulder.
Now I have a great crew, So I solely boulder. So do other crew. and there are so many virgin areas in korea, so we are developing and establishing new area now. (if you want to FA and name new problems, this is great chance for you)

And PNU(pusan national university) is great area and horrible area at the same time. cuz PNU is very near to the mountain which is main bouldering area. and there are some bars, So it makes my crew boozed out every Friday night. Now they became alcoholic and have big fat beer belly.

we don't have a shortage of pads right now. actually, even number of pads exceeds number of people.

So Welcome!

I can give you a tour of busan about where is the gyms, the gear shops and etc.. if you want. Actually, I do this for everyone who comes to busan.

here is my number
010-9310-3043

(PM and email wouldn't respond quickly)

have a just mediocre days until you come to busan, because you will have an AWESOME days in busan.


p.s. November is good season to boulder. whole winter and spring is good season for south province too.

ToriSteeves, if you talking about this gym, they don't do gym business anymore.

http://www.koreaontherocks.com/climb...ea_city%3D5%26

Last time I visited there, They still have a wall and really decent good imported holds on the wall. (I like those holds a lot.) But, it's no longer in service...

(you can go up-stair and touch them, but can't go regularly for training..)

This gym is on top of the outdoor/climbing gear store. It seems they want to focus on store business rather than gym business.

So, I think this is closest gym from Da-dae.
