I've integrated some of the climbing areas with Google Maps and the satellite imagery. It's not perfect, but it's pretty cool. But we still need your help plotting and posting more coordinates.
To give you a taste, check out these climbing areas:

Those are the decent ones. Here are some that aren't so great:
But, Google continues to take satellite imagery of all of korea and the quality continues to improve all the time
. So, in the future, most of satellite imagery of Korea should be pretty good which will make finding crags and gyms much easier!
Just look to the south of Halmae Bawi
and see the difference in resolution.
Or look to the north of the Daejeon Climbing Gym
and see the awesome resolution of the city.
You can help get more sites "mapped". Here's how:
- If you are the area submitter, try to find that area on google maps and follow these instructions.
- If you didn't submit the area, but you know where the climb is, follow these instructions and post the coordinates in this thread.
- If you have GPS coordinates and you didn't submit the area, just post the coordinates in this thread. This will help people map the climbing area.
If you have questions, you can post them here as well.
This page might also answer some of you questions:
Eventually, we'll be able to create a map of Korea that will have all the climbing areas plotted on it and it will be awesome for anyone looking for a place to climb.
