Finding a gym near YOU!
How’s your Korean? If you can read and write the language (or know someone who can), you can try searching for near-by climbing by searching in Korean. Try one or more of the following with the name of your city or gun (in 한글!). Many climbing gyms are signed in Korean, but use the English words: 스포츠 클라이밍센터 is prounounced roughly “sport climbing center”. In Korean, an indoor gym is usually 인공암장 or 실내암장, while an outdoor wall is 실외암장. 암장 is also used to indicate natural rock climbing areas. Often the specific cliffs have 바위, 벽, 해벽, 봉 (rock, cliff, sea cliff, or peak) in their names. For starters, you can use this info to navigate to the gyms/climbing pages of the Kim Yong-Ki and Mountain Mag links on this website! Once you've gotten the basic info in Korean, try your area search again in English (works especially well for outdoor places that will have info in English, but likely no mention of the climbing!)
