Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionA small crag in a nice quiet, shady forest. I believe the rock is Gneiss. It feels fairly secluded for being in a Seoul suburb. However, like most Korean crags, expect crowds on weekends. Some fun crimpy, short, bouldery climbing.
Please be very respectful of the tombs on the approach. Details
This is probably private property, and the tombs are quite important to the families of their ancestors who rest there. A famous Korean crag on this site was closed because of concern over this type of thing. (Also, cached gear)
Getting ThereBest way to get there is to go to "Sanseong station" on the Seoul metro, and take the #9 bus to "Buldangni Maeul (Village)" or take a taxi from the station to Buldangni Village.
Once there, walk past the parking lot (on your right) and up the road for about 5 minutes to a little bridge over a stream on your right. Take a left off the bridge, and walk through the village. Just before the last restaurant on your right, there will be a trail going through between 2 little farm backyards. (There is a green block sign, and a metal retracting fence here) Walk up that for about 50 feet, and take a small trail up the right side of the tombs. Follow the trail through the forest for about 5 minutes to the wall.
Here's a link to a topo. (Sorry only available in Korean)
