Beta on Samcheon sea wall

I made a trip into Sancheong last Sunday for a little bouldering on their outdoor wall. I'd expected to have the wall all to myself... but to my surprise, I ran into a crew of Korean Red Cross volunteers, based out of Jinju, in town for the day for a picnic and climb.

I threw on my shoes... and by the time I clipped on my chalk bag, one of them was offering to belay me. Lucky for me, I had my harness.

Long story short, after a couple of hours of climbing together, they invited me to climb with them this coming weekend in Samcheon. They described the crag as being ocean-side and multi-pitch.

I searched KOTR for it, but haven't found anything so far.

Has anyone heard of it? If so, what can you tell me about it?

Wow Cool!

I went down there one day to look for this place-- spent two days (with Jessica when she lived in Gwangyang) but my car was running really rough, and while I seemed to find all the places on the directions, never found the cliff. I pretty much gave up. . . there's a lot of coast down there. I have a minor broken foot, but if there's not much of a hike, I'd be way down for joining y'all, as long as I can meet somewhere that I can find!!

It doesn't seem to have any multi-pitch climbing (8-14 meters?) and it seems steep, with 10c as the easiest of 6 routes!

Here are good websites with the beta for the area!
