Submitted on June 5th, 2006 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Jeollanam-Do    City: Mokpo   
 photo Slate?-like sedementary rock of mixed quality (friable to quite decent!) vertical to overhanging corners, roofs. . .with some vertical cracks. 5-15 meters on the beach; 50m for Haneul Dari, one of the 8 sights of Gwanmaedo: a 50 meter rock with a slice through the middle (so two rocks) over the sea. There's a bridge over it! You'd need to take a boat to that side of the island (would be very easy to arrange in the off-season)-- maybe some trails but a hefty hike. The main climbs are on the North end of Gwanmae beach. A few vertical cracks that ... [Read More]

Ironpalms Wall
Submitted on March 27th, 2011 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Jeollanam-Do    City: Mokpo   
 photo More Yudalsan "pebbles", with more variations than Kokkiri Bawi. From 8-16 meters-- slabs, overhangs, crazy corners and pebbly slabs will keep you on your toes.

South facing, the sun hits early and leaves late, with some gorgeous sunsets over the sea.

Ironpalms J (정현진) is the driving force behind this wall, a real gem that with Kokkiri Bawi makes Mokpo a destination for climbing. There's easy access and something for everyone.

This is a great winter crag-- soaking up the sun in the temperate south. In summer, th... [Read More]

Kokkiri Bawi
Submitted on November 13th, 2005 by skinsk Type: Rock Climbs    Province: Jeollanam-Do    City: Mokpo   
 photo Sedimentary conglomerate, slab to vertical, with some overhanging starts toward the left. One thin crack (11 c) on an otherwise pebbly face with small often not-super positive holds. Most of the routes have 1-2-3 finger pockets here and there. There's one good edge (10a) and a few nice heucos (one you can sit in!), one huge niche with a route that climbs out the side of it (11c) and several 10s and 11s with overhanging sequency starts. Good face climbing pretty unique for Korea that will test your balance, creativity and footwork without leavin... [Read More]

Mokpo Climbing Club
Submitted on November 13th, 2005 by skinsk Type: Gyms    Province: Jeollanam-Do    City: Mokpo   
 photo Closed weekends.

Small city gym, close knit-- they go on lots of trips, train hard (including annual climbing school) and are open to foreigners, though English is not spoken. They've had several foreign members in the past. Membership is subsidized and reasonable.

One story gym (4th floor) with steep walls (some with jugs) and a ceiling area with very high mats!... [Read More]
