Twenty-two routes from the ground. four of which have second pitches. This is weird, quartz-like rock. Quite polished, but with sharp edges. Loads of features, but a lot of the holds are negative, so takes some working out.

This place was bolted in late 2008, so the bolts and anchors are still shiny and new. None of the routes are over 30m.

Get to Eui-am Dam (의암담). Go to the side of the bridge with the restaurants. Walk straight, with the lake on your left, for about 200m. You will come to a little opening, with a small car park and a hiking route map. Go up here, about 20m past the map, take the trail that branches off to the right. The crag will be right in front of you. Four of the routes are further round the left corner, you'll have to go back to the trail to get to these.

To get to the dam, I would advise getting in a taxi and saying Eui-am dam. It will only be about 7000won from the bus terminal. There's a bus stop next to the dam and all buses go back into town, but I'm not sure which one to take to get out there.

If you are driving, take the 46 out of Chuncheon for about 7km. Go through the Eui-am tunnel, then take the first right, through the village to the dam.

Safety Concerns
The routes to the left are a bit chossy and mossy.

Gear to Bring
60m rope. 10 quickdraws.

Additional Comments
There's also a multipitch about 500m up the road, but I haven't done it, yet. Will post it when I have.
