|Eric is right on the money. This place rocks! Great for people new to the sport. Easy to find also, just follow the old wall trail for 5 minutes. If it gets crowded, have fun trying to park your car. Bus 203 is your best bet or you can walk 4.4 km up the road from the greenhouse down on the main road. Lots of boulders, too.|

|Thanks for the fresh photos. I got tired of looking at myself. :)|

|I went here today, the day after Chuseok. It was crowded! All the clubs in the area decided to go to this place today. Anyway, I was invited to climb every ten minutes and everyone was absolutely polite and kind. They even wanted me to drink Mokoli afterwards. How can the Koreans be so nice one on one and yet so terrible once behind the wheel of car! The funny thing is, when asked (Yes, I can speak Korean) they all agree with me about it! One guy said that it was lucky Korea doesn't have individual ownership of guns, because there would probably be street gunfights like the old West..... If you get the chance, come here. It's not to big, but it's worth the day trip. KOTR members can crash at my apartment anytime!|

|these climbs are well bolted and worth exploring. we found 12 not 30 sport routes. When you exit off bus #203, walk the hiking trail farthest away from the huge trail board. There are three visible trails and walking down the proper trail can save precious daylight. also, one should be weary of wild bus rides.. suggestion: ride this bus without a full stomach, u may be thankful when leaving it without dropping an unwanted souvenir for other passengers to smell. we spent a day climbing w/ lovely koreans who spoke little to no english; however, their hospitality earned us free food, drink, and preset TR (top rope) routes on a slippery, wet rock.|

was up here saturday and sunday. quick add on to the directions: always stick to the right hand branches once you are on the trail, its faster and easier.
And there are definitely more than 12 climbs. the area is divided into 2, almost three areas: lower, upper, and around the corner of the upper area.
one fun feature not yet mentioned is that the grade of a lot of the climbs is written at the bottom of the bolt line.
watch out on the 5:10 b/c in the upper area, one of the bolts is missing, and its right above a ledge. you can clip the bolt to the left if no one is climbing next to you, o rclimb straight to the next one. exposed, but not crazy hard

|I have never seen this place without a crowd on the weekend. You're better off avoiding this place unless it's on a weekday. There's plenty of other places, I've even run across some that aren't listed on this site. Maybe I'll work on that later.|

|holy crap, i wrote this place off nearly a year ago because the weekend crowds suck. i still stand by that... weekends = shitty crowds, but i just went yesterday morning and this place is rad. there were a lot of climbs, whomever saw only 12 is retarded or blind. i'm guessing about 30 bolted lines with a little trad potential, and if go around the base and walk south 10 or 15 min there are about 100 trad lines that look unclimbed. some are are five star, but most are just average.|
