One day of FA's BUSAN Nov 25 (Sat)
My crash pad gets here tomorrow! That means that this Saturday will be the first day of official bouldering development.
I've chosen to go with an area above NamSanDong 남산동. It has about a 30 min approach from the bus stop. The first two thirds of the hike are actually paved so it's not too bad. I think this will be a good first place to develop because of it's variety. There will be plenty of V0's for newbies, and harder problems too. If more pads show up there are a few beautiful highballs. It is the longest approach of any area I've found but I think it should be worth it. I'll meet at Jangjeon Dong 장전동 subway at 10:00 A.M. Exit on the west side (facing the big mountain). The bus will pick us up there.
If you have a pad bring it. If not, don't worry. Aside from that just bring enough food and water. A camera wouldn't hurt either so we can document this place for KOTR. If you want to go, but this time doesn't work out just let me know. We'll figure something out.
What you can expect.. A variety of problems with a few overhangs too. Mostly low ball with a few exceptions. There will be a great warm up wall with 10 to 15 lines on it. I've already cleaned up a few of the more classic lines, And I'm hoping to get about twenty good problems out of the day if my arms hold up. There is a ton of potential here, but I'm not sure how long the first 20 will take.
Even if no one shows, Feliz and I will be up there, and I'll try to get some pics up.
