Sea cliffs along Mosageum Beach in Yeosu. . . developed by the local Yeosu club, it's not so much a destination, but if you're in the area. . . The rock is right on the west end of the beach, north of Manseongri Beach. 6 routes, and a few unbolted cracks. . . 5 routes are clusteresd together facing the sea; one around the corner right looked pretty gross, as people turned the start into the local "bathroom".

Directly north of Yeosu Station ( a W4000 taxi ride) and north-east of the bus terminal. From the airport road 17 to 77 to the beaches-- follow the signs. It's in Ocheon-dong. . . the main road (mostly along the coast) from the train station will get you there. . . go through the one-lane tunnel (S-bound has right of way) and keep right following the signs to Mosageum Beach. (The nearest bus stop is about 1/2 k from the beach)

Safety Concerns
Typical anchors; the cracks are a little dirty and some of the moves are awkward. . . you want your belayer to be attentive. Otherwise well-bolted and "interesting" routes, though limited.

Gear to Bring
10 draws and a 50 meter rope will let you do all of the routes. A set of nuts and cams and you might have some fun on the cracks/extra back-up.

Additional Comments
Many min-baks near-by, and some very basic mom and pop "supermarkets" and in the off-season camping on the beach posed no problem. The place is a little trashed, so bring a giant trash bag and get some karma points.

Climbed this place two times. Once in 2016 and the second time in 2017. Both time I climbed on summer time. One of the bolts on the very left side route failed and I was lucky to be completely. At seaside crags; saltwater breezes are very caustic to climbing hardware.

*lucky to be completely fine.
