Sang Bawi

  • Grades: US
  • Aka: 백운산


This crag was developed in 1992 with seven routes. It faces southwest on granite rock. It offers mostly easy slab multi-pitch climbing, except for the route called “Sangseok”. Sang-bawi is usually quiet and is a good place to train beginners.


From Wonju 원주, take the bus heading to Guirae 귀래. Get off at Cheongwon Rest Area 청원휴게소. It will take forty minutes from Wonju to get there. With your back to the rest area, walk left on the forest road that is by a big tomb. The crag can be seen on your right from time to time while walking along the road. Continue on the at forest road for twenty-five minutes until you see a sign that says “상바위” Sang-bawi. At the sign, look for a trail on your right that starts to ascend steeply. Scramble up for ten minutes to reach the crag.


Gear 10 draws and a 60m rope. The Sangseok 상석 route requires a set of small to mid-sized cams. Safety A helmet and extra webbing is recommended. The wall is a bit mossy, but most of the bolts and anchors are in good condition. Additional Comments Water and snacks should be available at the shop by the bus stop.
