Which gym to go to?

Yao -

So I'm set up to stay at Seoul Backpacker's for the first week I'll be in Korea, starting next monday. THe address is 30-1, Iksun-dong, Seoul. Anyone have an idea where that is, and if there is a gym nearby? I haven't gotten the hang of Korean city maps quite yet. . .feeling slightly disabled.

So, so psyched to get out there.

more specific

can you find out what gu you're in-- or better yet, which subway station are you near?

anyway, I think you're close to this one: http://www.koreaontherocks.com/climb...sort%3Dname%26 and the poster seems to give very clear directions.

Hexa is a few stops down the orange line, and a little more condusing to find. http://www.koreaontherocks.com/climb...sort%3Dname%26 Use the navigational photos if your Korean isn't so good.

Or you could ride a few more stops on the orange line to Chung-jun's gym. http://www.koreaontherocks.com/climb...sort%3Dname%26 He's a stellar guy and you're bound to get psyched! Once you're on the subway. . .

In the evening or weekend, if the weather is nice, going to an artificial wall is a great way to meet local climbers!
"If you can't do something well, you might as well learn to enjoy doing it poorly." -- from a de-motivational poster, but I find it oddly liberating!
