Mad Gym Sport Climbing is a relatively new gym in 금천구 / Geumcheon-gu. The head instructor is 김인경 / Kim In Kyeong.

This gym has more space dedicated to bouldering, but the circuit routes are maybe a little more popular. On some nights, half the gym is closed for coached training sessions.

Mad Gym is somewhat unique in that both its instructors (김인경 & 문지연) are female. Both have many years of diverse climbing experience. 김인경 also speaks pretty good English and is stronger than the vast majority of male climbers (anywhere).

There's plenty of intensity among the climbers, but the atmosphere here is friendly and enjoyable. I would even say, the most friendly & fun of all gyms I've been to in Seoul / Gyeonggi.

Rental shoes are available.

M-F: close 11pm
Saturday: 2 - 6pm [January & February only]
Sundays and Holidays: closed

First, find it on the map.

From 독산역 / Doksan Station, walk a few blocks past a school on your left. When you come to a pharmacy (약) on your left, turn left. You'll see the gym on your right, just across the way from Yoon's English Academy.

A multitude of bus lines run along 시흥대로 just to the east. Get off at the 말뫼고개 stop.

Routes and boulders are being set frequently these days. New setting is making more use of screw-on holds. Most Korean gyms lack screw-on holds, but they're key to simulating rock. So it's good to see.

During most weekday evenings the gym is used for climbing & fitness classes. These days, it's more like a climbing academy than a gym.

Currently, Fridays are open-gym (no classes)

Comment added by blacklotus on August 6th, 2013
For now, the gym is used every night primarily for classes from 8 - 11. If you visit before the classes, few people will be here, so the walls will be very free.

I just tried to go here this morning and it looks like this place either just got torn down or major renivations are happening. :/

Anyone know if this place is open? Thinking of checking it out sometime soon, not sure if the above comment is accurate and/or current as of today. Thanks!

The gym still exists but it has changed locations. Someone who is familiar with the area should post updated directions to the address on the mad gym website.
