Artificial climbing walls in Seoul.

I am writing thus in my CP so this will be Short.
Being new to climbing I natrually had the brilliant idea to scale
some of the walls with just a harness and daisy chain and have noticed
that Ttuksom, Hakyeouk and Boramae all have loose bolts and holds.

On average I'd like to say 8/10 are safe which makes it worse because
it's those 2 that will get you. On my second climb at Ttuksome I had a foot hold
spin around (thank you daisy chain) causing me to slip.

If you do use the public climbing areas make sure you have a safe and secure

If you can bring a wrench and tighten those holds, even better!

You can tell the volunteers who work at Ttukseom that holds are loose and they will fix them.

I had 1, maybe 2 loose(ish) holds, but nothing bad enough to slip or rotate.

I've been to Ttukseom several times and the wall is pretty solid.

Also, rotating tiny foothold will happen anywhere, even in a gym.

PS you scaled up a wall with your sling and nobody said anything? Strange.
