I am guessing with ratings; some we could do, some we couldn't!

The boulders are near a training course complete with rope bridge and Tyrolian traverse (though rigged with a cable so you'd want to add your own rope) with a net underneath. Some of the short "rappel routes" could be top-roped.

About a half day's worth of amusements, but not much to recommend (unless you really want to practice tyrolian traverses where there's a net under you and matresses to smack into!)

A crash pad would be good, though the landings aren't bad and a good spotter would be enough. A toothbrush to clean dirty holds and a mat for the sit starts would be nice.

Problems are vertical to overhanging, with good crimps, some delicate moves and funky mantles.

Supposedly, there are 8 routes to climb on this mountain, but from this direction, the bouldering has the most potential.

A number of busses run from Bucheon Station to Sihung -- 31, 31-3, 31-5, 31-7, 31-9. . .(ask for Soraesan). The 38 and 61 also stop by the trailhead from Sincheon-dong and Ansan Station. Some restaurants, a Tofu place, and a big Boshintang/??? restaurant by the bus stop closest to the trail/road (by Widaeya-1 gil/Sangdaeya-dong). Take the road just next to the overpass (on your right facing the mountain from the main road; you'll parallel the highway walking up; razor wirew and barbed wire to your right), a road leads up. . . at the top there's some parking, bathrooms and a sign. The boulders are visible from here. Keep heading up (left of sign) to get to the ropes courses and rappel stations. With a 4-wheel drive you can make it up the road to just below the rap stations.

Safety Concerns
Some brittle rock, but unless you were leading one of the two climbs we saw with bolts (old rusting pitons), it's not a concern. Good landings.

Additional Comments
Some restaurants below, but no water nearby-- bring your own. Plenty of shade. Some weekend hikers and picnickers, but we attracted surprisingly little attention.
