Here is my attempt at directions. Someone please do better:

Directions, from Surisan Station you need to make your way to Surisan Woodland Park it is less than 3000 won by taxi. It would take you about 30 minutes to walk.

To understand these directions please understand that the hike in is divided into three tiers, with each tier divided by a larger dirt trail that runs perpendicular to the smaller trails you will be hiking up.

When you get to the park you will see a paved hill. Walk up the paved hill for a good 7 - 10 minutes.

First Tier about 5 minutes to hike up:

You will take a right before a path to a temple/building; which you can’t see yet. You can recognize this path because it will fork left up some stairs or right though a path in the trees. There is also a fence dividing these two paths. Which I believe is green.

Fork right on this trail and now your goal is simply to go up this path and stay as close to that fence as possible you will eventually reach a wide dirt road. At the top of this tier you can see the building on your left.

When you get to the wide dirt road turn left and find some obvious wood signs in Korean. If you go past the temple/building you have gone too far.

Second Tier about 5 minute to hike up:

Nearby that sign there are several paths that lead up the second tier. Choose one and hike up. There is a big picnic area on the second tier, it has approximately 8 picnic tables. If you see these you are in the right area. Hike up the second tier and veer up and to the left past picnic tables. You are generally just trying to get the top of this tier. If you arrive at a perpendicular wider road that ends just to your left and there is a different fence, on your left, you are in the right spot. If not, follow this second wider road left until you get there. It won’t take long.

There is a small goat path nearby the location I described above. There is a ditch that you will have to cross to get on the goat path. It is really close to that fence area that I described above. You should be able to see the goat path from that fence.

Third Tier about 9 minutes to hike up:

Hike up that goat path, you should see some rocks to your right, until you get to the crag. It is on your right.

Safety Concerns:

All the anchors are death triangles. If you plan to top-rope bring gear to solve that problem.

Some really fun climbs, and great views of cityscape and rolling hills.

To get there:
take line 1 or 4 to Geumjeong (금정). Outside exit 6, get on bus 15. Take bus 15 to Jung-Ang Library (중앙도서관). Hike uphill on a paved path, past two temples on your right. The pavement ends at an intersection.

Take a "soft right" (as opposed to hard right) up a dirt road. The signs say "만남의 광장 540m" and "임간교실." Pass a signal tower with fake tree bark. The road enters the forest and gets flat. Go ~20m until the road narrows to a trail through the grass. A trail cuts uphill here to the left.

Take this trail uphill for a ways. Pass a smaller cliff and you'll see the main cliff.

This is NOT Seoul. It's Gunpo.

fun rock! Easy to get to via public trans. From train station exit #3, take the yellow 3-1 bus to the park. You will see the enterance on your left. From there it's a death march but it is worth it. I really enjoyed the climbs as well as the people. The protection looks pretty new. The bolts don't even spin! Fun place though...
