K2 gym in Seoul - what the hell?
Who climbs here, anyway? I've been climbing for more than a decade and climb hard. I visited this place just out of curiosity and was just bewildered. Desk staff look like they work at a hotel, and ID card / paperwork is required to enter. Korean man (non-climber) who works there explains it's "members only". Where in the universe is there another climbing center whose design is so ridiculous and unwelcoming to strangers?
It's a little unfortunate this place has such a nice KOTR page, and one must read through the comments to realize it's weird and clearly not run by actual rock climbers - or at least not by climbers without sticks up their bums.
