Granite slab with cracks and flakes up to 4 pitches. . . many routes require some aid. Byeongpung Am was developed from 1960-1970, mostly, with the right-most route put in 1990.

Some runout seems even worse due to sketchy pro and hollow sounding flakes.

Enter the park from Ui-dong; shuttles or a taxi take you to Doseonsa, a large temple complex with a ticket booth. Pay W1600 and start hiking left below the temple where the road ends. 40 minutes or so, just beyond the castle ruins, the trail will branch off and signs will point several directions. The main trail heads to Nojeokbong; take the steep unmarked trail heading right up the ridge. Where the ridge becomes ridgier, an obvious side access trail heading right while you still can leads down to the base.

Safety Concerns
Some pitches of 40 meters. . . 2 ropes are ideal if you want to multi-pitch. You wouldn't want to trust any one piece mid-route, Tie a knot in your ends before rapelling.

Some loose rocks and hollow-sounding flakes. Not a super popular trail, but hikers may be present above. Other climbers are unlikely.

Some very old and sketchy pieces, though newer anchors. Slings and webbing and a knife to replace some webbing at anchors would be providing a valuable service!

Gear to Bring
A set of cams, and some long slings, a set of draws. Some cracks might take large pieces. Aiders would be great on aid sections. Don't let moderate grades fool you. . . these are old routes. . . before 3.13 existed!!

Additional Comments
Less than an hour from food, drinks and temples and easily accessed by public transport. If you have some experience and nerves of steel, this is one of the closest approaches in Bukhansan, and unlikely to have many other climbers. Still, it's adventure climbing, and general precautions for weather and benighting, etc should be considered.

Grid to crag is 37.6526479 126.9814865.

Bolts and grades are old school. Easy route= fewer bolts. Lots of bolts= hard route or aid line.
