Description
"Be happy with TAGY".Opened in spring 2004, It's best place for climbers. You can meet climbing, people and culture!!

TAGY(타기) means climbing in Korean. It's easy to say.

The TAGY Climbing Center is a fairly large and clean bouldering gym(330㎡)about 12 different walls of varying sizes.
It has tons of various climbing holds w/ Metolius fingerboard.

It has general fitness room, 3 treadmills, stretching area, locker and shower/change rooms.
정수기 (water purifier) and sink - so if you like to wash your hands off periodically, there's a sink
literally right in the climbing area and lovely rest area for rest and reading books(There are many English magazines, climbing/mountaineering books).

Everyone here is friendly and enjoyable.
Bouldering party(game) is held monthly. It's a fun and enjoyable team game not the individual competition.
They usually organize weekend trips when the weather is good.

The owner's name is Miyoung Jeong.She can speak/teach climbing in English. she is also friendly and helpful to her gym members.
She would like to meet foreign climbers in her gym because she spends much time there.

Wonderful gym, very friendly English speaking staff. Great place to train and have fun.

Second gym opened in Sachangdong area of Cheong-ju, much smaller but one pass covers both.

The main gym will move the end of January 2007, Just a few blocks away but call ahead if you are worried about finding it. Nearly as big. And this place is huge as far as Korean gyms go.

Second small gym to the best of my knowledge is closing very shortly. I have heard rumours about another gym that is not affiliated with Tagy opening up in the Ulyong dong district. Nothing confirmed yet as I have not checked it out.

Comment added by rgdc on April 8th, 2008
Both of these gyms have now closed but the people who run Tagy have opened two new gyms in town. One in Bunpyong dong the other in Gaesin dong. The Bunpyong dong gym is only a few blocks away from the main gym. Walk down the street towards the river, cross the river and turn right at the first road, the big one. Follow the road, the tagy is on the third floor of a large building on the opposite side of the street. There is a large blue sign indicating that there is rock climbing.

The second gym opened in April 2008 is in Gaesin dong. 5 minutes drive from the express bus terminal. Take a taxi to Gaisingdong (gay shin dong) Will mart. Standing facing the Will mart, turn left and walk down the street, the gym in on the same side as the will mart. It is the block before the intersection with traffic lights. It is under the 1+24 mart (see photos). There is currently no sign but the door is glass and it should be obvious that you are in the right place.

Friendly English speaking staff with a great bunch of climbers. Fairly big gym with enough climbing surface to keep most people going. There will be tread mills and other training equipment but not at the time of writing.

Hi!

Can anybody give me directions how to get to the gyms? I'm from Germany and don't speak Korean so the website is not very helpful for me. I'll be staying in the north of Cheongju (Ramada Plaza) for quite some time, any recommendations on how to get to the gyms by publictransport?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Felix

Hi! I am currently in Goesan and looking to travel to Cheongju for a little climbing. Can I get directions to the gym from the main bus terminal?

regards,
joelle

It's difficult to explain to get our gym from bus terminal because Cheongju bus course is not enough to get everywhere and more difficult than other way for the first time.
but Cheongju is small city so, you can go other places easily by bicycle and taxi. but I'm preparing soon and posting.

Our direction is below,
It's located at the roadside and very near "Bangseo intersection".
Walk 100m towads "Air Force Academy" from "Bangseo intersection" then you will see on your left.
she recommands to take a taxi and show the address(방서동 206-1 or 방서동 대머리해장국 옆).

Or, you can give my phone No. to taxi driver for explaning it.(043-284-5014/010-4520-5014).
Cheongju is small city so, you can go anywhere with less than 10,000 won.
This gym is located near Sannam-dong, bumpyeong-dong, Youngam-dong, Geumcueon-dong , Youngum-dong and Sugok-dong.
