Experienced climber moving to Ulsan...what should i bring???

I'm a returning wayguk and am looking to get into the Ulsan/Busan climbing scene. I've had a great year on ice and am looking to crank on rock again.

can lead sport 5.10ish, lead ice WI4, have an ok rack for trad.

1) who is climbing lots
2) who can show me around the climbing scene

Anything to help me out would be amazing!
if you need something from canada let me know...im leaving for korea around the 23rd.

To climb is not to summit but to reach a destination in life.

hey ryan,
i know you wrote this a while ago, but i've been out of korea for a while myself. my name is dusty and i live in gyeongsan, a suburb southeast of daegu. there are a couple of good crags i know north of you, one call mu-cheok-san near pohang. the other is mun-su-san, which i think is close to ulsan. both of these places offer amazing sport climbing. mu-cheok is very sharp rock and offers good shade in warmer weather, while mun-su is south-facing and is pretty popular in the winter time.

i don't know if you have a car, but we have one so i'm not too familiar with public transport for getting there. sorry about that. i also know busan has lots to offer as well. i just haven't been down there yet. hoping to do some bouldering around there this spring. that's where the developing is, or so i've heard. as far as trad goes, i don't know of anything too close, unless you're willing to travel up to donghae, where there's some amazing one and two pitch routes at mureung valley. and there's a bus route that runs directly from the train station. if that seems like a feasible option for you, i may be heading up there in a few weeks.

otherwise, i hope to meet up with you at the crag sometime.
