Chuam Beach Bouldering View Full Version of Chuam Beach Bouldering

Province Name: Gangwon-Do
City Name: Donghae
Type of Area: Bouldering

Good quality rock (occasionally sharp) with 30?40? potential problems in a variety of ranges. Many of the landings are beach landings, for others, a spotter or pad would be nice.
Overhangs, aretes, roofs. . . balancy faces. . .

The rocks are on the far right of the beach. . . keep walking around or over for more and more!

Chuam Beach is in Donghae, and there are city busses. A train station, Chuam Station, is right on the beach.

Safety Concerns
Some highball moves, and some loose rock on top, but generally the landings are good and the rock solid.

Additional Comments
It's on a developed beach with bathrooms, supermarkets, restaurants, a reflexology foot walk, cultural relic, and sculpture park!

As of now, Chuam beach is closed to Bouldering. Nobody is allowed on to enter the section of the beach containing the boulders.

I'll be in Donghae midweek so will drop by, ask around, climb and/or shed a tear, then return with news.
