2008 is the year of the cimb-fest in my books (even though, or maybe bevause I missed the M&G
), and so here's the next major event on the KOTR "higher than you think" calender of fun.
We've tried this before, but this year halloween is actually a Friday and so fits well. Grab your costume ("no costume, no climbing" as stated in the model of the provisional draught constitution on KOTR's as yet unpublished lexa non scripta
edition). Tent city will function as the door-to-door "trick or treat street" and we will also be doing the "every individual bring a single 5,000won or less mystery gift swap thing". Know what I'm saying?
So don't despair if you missed the M&G
, rather gear up, dress up and get yourself over to "the G" for a weekend of spooky kooky fun and frights.
Saturday night feasting a distinct possibility (I'm thinking communal punch and cake at the least). Jack-o-lanterns galore (if pumpkins are hard to come by, use watermelons!) welcome.
For directions on getting to Ganhyeon (Kanhyun/간현 etc) see the link:
Trains from Seoul's Cheongyangni Station (청양리역) run straight to Ganhyeon village, a mere 20min walk from the crag.
By all means bring a Korean or non-climbing friend and spread the word.
