Need for advices for a rock climbing trip in Korea

I'll be in Korea from the 7 of September till the 4 of october for a leisure rock climbing trip with my wife and my boy. I'm living in France and working as a mountain guide.
What kind of stove and gas bottle is it possible to find in Korea? Is it easy to find?
Is it easy to find the rock climbing guide book for Korea in Korea? Wich guide book? and where is it possible to find it in Seoul?
Do many people do rock climbing in Korea and is it easily possible to find partners at the bottom of the cliffs? Which cliffs are often haunting to find climbing partners?
Thank you for your answers.

Red face Rock climbing book Korea

Hi Nicolas,

I got a book from my sister as a present It's called "Climb: 암벽등반"
ISBN: 978-89-958437-2-7

Flipping through the pages, it has great information on public transportation and lodging ideas, etc. But what it lacks is the actual picture with drawn routes on the wall. Most European climbing books have the actual picture or drawing of the wall but this only has a few and those were mostly general pics of multi-pitch routes. It seems like Koreaontherocks has a lot of information and I plan on referring to both.
I think it will probably be possible to find the book at a bookstore like 교보문고 which is a very big bookstore in Korea. I am attaching a link here so maybe you can check it out.

I am going to be in Seoul from Oct 3 to Oct 15 with my husband, visiting family and doing some climbing around there as well. Of course, I will bring the book along. If you all want to meet up for a bit and talk about climbing and share information or even go climb together, we are up for it.
