There are two layers of rock in this area. It changes about half way up the climb. The area is beside the ocean but they seem to take care of the bolts and anchors.

At Jae Gal Chi fish market go to he next intersection south and turn left. Keep going for 15 minutes or so until you get to the park. Park in the paid area or they will tow your car. Go up the stairs to the entrance(no fee)and follow the trail along the water until the suspension bridge. 10m before the bridge there is a sign; jump the fence and head down the steep hill.Can't miss it.

Safety Concerns
The purple rock is brittle if you are fat like me.Watch your fingers its sharp too.

Gear to Bring
10 draws will be enough.

Additional Comments
There is another crag there too maybe 70m past this one but i haven't been there.It's called 'Sang Awe Am'. There are buses going there but I don't know which ones. The market is close to the train station so you could easily go by train and then catch a bus.

P.M. me for a route guide. I will be updating this soon.

This is good top roping area. If you go down further, there's a tree you can tie off on instead of using the steep hill after the bridge. Right next to that, there is a steep but walkable area where you can train beginners. The directions suck. Just go to Song Do beach and keep following the signs to the park that's in the hilly area to the right.

This place is pretty cool but don't go unless you're okay with big cockroach-like bugs coming out of all the cracks.

You should also keep in mind that a few of the easier routes are not possible during high tide (or at least belaying them isn't possible).

This rock, Geobuk Am (or Turtle Rock) is the easiest of the three crags in Amnan Park, with routes ranging from 5.9 to 5.10d. It was developed in 2000 by Ryou Dong-il and some Busan taxi drivers who wanted to learn climbing. The bolts and rock is pretty solid, though it can get kinda hot and the last two rocks are used as a bathroom and can be kinda gross, sadly. . . but there are still 10 options where you won't have to watch your step at the base.

Does anyone have good directions on how to get her from Gunsan or Kunsan AB? Is it accessible by Korail train or taxi?

This crag looks like the anchors have just been redone! Older comments say that belaying during high tide is not possible during some routes, but that was probably after severe storms had come in and washed a lot of the rocks away. Belaying is available at all tides.

Climbed Amnam-Turtle Rock 5/2014. The first bolt on the climb to the far left was mangled. All the other climbs were maintained. The climbs ranged from 5.9 to 5.11b. There were some birds nesting in one of the routes' main holds for a 10a route, right before the first bolt.
