8 meters X 10 meters, but with various angles and route options. There are bolts every meter and several anchor options at the top. A 30 meter rope and 8 draws max are needed if you want to clip every meter.

It's brand new by Discovery Wall, 2007.

Jeonju University is in Wansan-gu, Hyoja-dong, across the Idonggyo (bridge) from the "main city". It's in the far western area of Jeonju that is developing quickly. There are lots of signs for the university (two blue JJs with a yellow star on top is the school logo) and nearby Hyoja Cemetery/Provincial Offices.

Several city busses in Jeonju terminate at Jeonju University. From the main gate, follow the obvious road to the Student Building (clock tower). There are several campus directory signs, one good one being in the roundabout in front of the Student Building. The Gym and Soonyeong Hall are behind, and to the left of the clocktower if you come from the main gate (you'll walk between Truth Hall and Freedom Hall and turn left. . . the campus slopes down to the newly renovated gym Soonyeong Hall. The wall is betweeen these two buildings.

Additional Comments
JJU doesn't have a particularly great student area outside of its gate, but there are basic restaurants and convenience stores on and off campus, and lots of cheap "coffee" and vending machines (Ediya Espresso just inside the gate is the only real coffee option). Inside the gym is a hot/cold filtered water dispenser and bathrooms.

I am not sure about hours and rules of the wall yet as it is new, but I've climbed there with the local student club and they belayed me and were super welcoming!

I'm moving and working at the University in one week. I'll keep you updated. Great!
