Hi, Sorry to hijack this thread, but I'm struggling to find out where I can get suitable insurance for climbing in korea. You mention that ordinary korean health insurance doesn't cover you for climbing accidents, but without getting a full blown travel insurance policy what other options are there? I hope the girl who had the accident is all right, sounds like a horrible ordeal.

Korean insurance will help alot with hospital, though not helicopter rescue. Membership in the American Alpine Club gives insurance including evac. . . not sure if it's open to non Americans, but maybe worth a check. . . and you could always post the results of a search in the appropriate forum!

Linsey is back in the USA and recovering. . . looking good, but it's a long path. . . one she will surely succeed in but positive energy, prayers, funding or as you like always helps!
"If you can't do something well, you might as well learn to enjoy doing it poorly." -- from a de-motivational poster, but I find it oddly liberating!
