Suwon View Full Version of Suwon

Province Name: Gyeonggi-Do
City Name: Suwon
Type of Area: Rock Climbs

Description
The rock here is very short maybe 25 ft tall. Rock type is crumbly quartzite granite, the rock is sold but small pebbles will break off. Type of climbing is slab/face/cracks and 1 corner. This seems like alot but there are actually only 5 climbs here. I wouldnt suggest this crag to anyone that doesnt live in the immediate area but if you are close and bored you might want to check it out for something diffrent.

Directions
from either Seoul or Chenon take the subway to Suwon station. Leave the subway out of exit #6. if you are facing the major road take a left and go to the bus stop. Take bus # 13 all the way to the end. This is were the fun begins. there is a one way road on the right hand side of the Bathrooms stop here and titen up your shoe laces. follow this road all the way to the top were you will run into a army outpost. To the right of the outpost there is a trail. follow this trail for about 10 mins befor you reach the top you will see a small trail on the right. follow this trail for about 1 minute and you will find yourself looking down into a ravine. this is the rock climbign area.

Safety Concerns
anchors. you know they are the usual 3 bolts with a clamped rusty wire cable and a tow truck hook.

Gear to Bring
4 draws will get you to the top of all the routes. if you plan on toproping i would suggest brining slings or webing and a few biners to build your own anchors with. small protection could be used here but isnt werth lugging up the mountain.

Additional Comments
get water from the fountain at the bus stop. there is nothing by the rock itself. there are some rather nasty toilets right by the army outpost.

The guys here at little Army outpost are very friendly (me being one of them). If the need be you can stop and get water and ice here.
