Moving to Korea; Climbing Gear

Hi -

So I'm likely moving to Seoul this august on a teaching contract.

I was there a couple of years ago doing some undergraduate work, really liked how much climbing culture existed there and the amount of climbing nearby.

One question I have for climbers there - how expensive are crashpads in Korea?

I know all the sport/trad gear will be able to be packed fairly easily. However, I have a couple large pads that would be pricey to ship and unwieldy to move with. And there is enough bouldering near Seoul that I'd want to keep a pad around.

Hey Mike, yeah the Seoul crew have developed (almost single handedly - major cudos and wraps to you guys!!) one of the best bouldering scenes in Korea, right there in Seoul. The infamous RB's (River Bed Boulders) being I believe the primo playground. I'm not sure how expensive pads are here, but I imagine they are not cheap...and 90% of the pads here are the Madrock Pad...which some people don't seem to like much (I dunno anything about pads though...)Could you maybe snail mail a pad cheaply?
