Sorry that post that says
"Piece of cake (really easy)" should read in Korean:
누워서떡먹기

Here are a few extra lines you might find uesful, I do.

1-Hang in there (don't give up/ stay positive).
끝까지 버텨

2-Let's hit the road (Let's be off/ Let's get going)
자, 출발하자!

3-It's not the end of the world!
세상이끝난건 아니다!

4-All's well that ends well.
끝이좋으면, 만사좋다.

5-Hunger is the best sauce.
시장이반찬이다!

Rope!
not "낙자" (which Jo Sungkab tells me is an interesting combination of Chinese and German words, handed down from colonial Japanese usage and therefore offensive to many Koreans), but "로프 떠러져요" or just "로프!"

Rocks!
낙석


Rock Climbing (Face)
암벽등반


Ridge Climbing
암릉등반

Not feeling good today
아이 시 오늘 컨디션이 안좋다

I give up (e.g. on a hard climb)
손드렀어

I really give up (e.g. on my nemesis)
두손 다 드렀어

Summit booze
정산주


Do you know whose rope this is?
이거 누구 자율인지 아십니까?


You're out of your league compared to others here.
뻔대기 앞에서 주름잡지 마!


Please give me a tasty nutritious snack.
아줌마, 뻔대기 주세요.


Okay, the last one aint right. couldn't resist : )

The big blue Road Map to Korean is great at explaining Chinese influence on Korean (in English, using Chinese and Korean only to illustrate what the book is explaining!) which definitely brings new insight. When so far from my teacher, I find websites good as they "pronounce" better than a book. I don't remember the name of the book I was using with my teacher, but I'll get it as I think it's good in some ways. . .

i remember a post a while back (maybe by eric) that had climbing gym, indoor climbing place, and a lot of other useful stuff. i only wrote down those two but I bet if anyone can find that, it would be useful to copy and paste on this thread for people.

OK here is an update on language that might prove useful dudes/ dudettes.
1-Climbing Gym
실내암벽등반 - shil-nae am-byeok deung-ban
암장 - am-jang {used only be other climber types. Not general public}
2-Is there a climbing gym around here?
여기가 실내암벽등반있어요?
Yeo-gi-ga shil-nae am-byeok deung-ban iss-o-yo?
3-Can you write me the address please?
주소는 서주세요
Ju-so-neun seo-ju-se-yo
4-Sorry (excuse me). Can you belay me?
실례합니다. 확보 해주세요
Shil-ye ham-ni-da. Hwak-bo-hae-ju-se-yo?
5-Sure (my pleasure).
네, 좋아요.
Ne, Jo-ah-yo.
6-Do you want to lead this?
선등 하실래요?
seon-deung ha-shil-lae-yo?
7-No. You go for it!
아니요. 당신이 선등 하실래요!
Ah-ni-yo. Dang-shin-i seon-deung ha-shil-hae-yo.
8-Really? Awesome. Thanks!
정말요? 대단해요! 감사합니다!
Jeong-mal-yo? Dae-dan-hae-yo! Kam-sa-ham-ni-da!
9-You're welcome. Just don't screw it up or fall.
천만해요. 망치지마세요. 추락하지마세요.
Cheon-man-hae-yo. Mang-chi-ji-ma-se-yo. Chu-rak-ha-ji-ma-se-yo.
10-Yeah, don't worry about me.
응, 내 걱정하지마세요.
Ueng (Uhh), Nae keok-jeong-ha-ji-ma-se-yo.
11-Finished! (at anchors) Lower me!
완료! 내려주세요!
Wol-yo! Nae-ryo-ju-se-yo!
12-Do you want me to clean the route (grab the quickdraws etc)?
(퀵드로즈) 회수해요?
Quickdraws hwei-su-hae-yo?
13-Yeah clean the pro/ draws/route.
네, 회수하세요!
Ne, hwei-su ha-se-yo!
14-Hang-on/ Wait a second/ Stop for a sec!
대기! /잠간!
Dae-gi!/ Jam-kan!

From all this you can see the 2 crucial verb endings:
1-(ha)-ji-ma-se-yo (-(하) 지-마-세요)
This means "Don't (do)..."
Don't go = Ka ji-ma-se-yo! (가지마세요)
Don't swear (curse) = York ha-ji-ma-se-yo (욕하지마세요)
Don't argue/ fight = Sa-um ha-ji-ma-se-yo (싸움하지마세요)

2-ju-se-yo. (-주세요)
This means "Please do/ give ....for me"
Give me the water please = Mul-ju-se-yo (물주세요)
Give me a hand (help) = Do-wa-hae-ju-se-yo (도와해주세요)
Take me to "X" please (to a taxi-driver) = "X" ka-ju-se-yo ("X" 가주세요)

Joe, Jake, etc

I'm gonna steal a lot of this for an appendix. . .

also note that 암장 (rock wall/place) is used for gym, 실내암장 or real rock, i.e. 부엉새 (or any other rock)암장. . .
a little familiarity and phrases like 인공빙(벽)장 (artificial ice climbing wall) will roll off your tongue. . . or at least help you navigate the magazines

Ahh yeah but be careful. Actually 실내암벽등반 is quite literally "room-inside-rock-wall-climb area" it doesn't imply real rock.
