This crag was developed in 1991 and has seventeen routes. The climbs here are less than 13m and offer face, crack, and overhanging climbing on excellent granite stone. It can be reached within half an hour from the subway station and gets sun all day.


At Gwachun Subway Station 과천 (Line #4), take Exit 7. Head towards Gwachun Middle School 과천중학교. Pass the middle school and walk up to the park o ce. It will take fifteen minutes from the subway station. Continue to hike on the main trail for another fifteen minutes until you reach a wooden bridge. The trail will start to ascend steeply. After a few minutes of hiking, you’ll see the crag to your left. Cross the valley and scramble up to the crag.

Take subway line 4 from Seoul to Gwacheon Station. Leave the station through exit 7, and walk up the road until you dead end at the river road. Take a left, and walk until you see the park entrance on the right. Go up the main trail until you see two large signs (I uploaded a picture) on the left of the trail. There are stone steps right after the signs. Turn left just at the foot of the stairs. Cross the river on the boulder walk, and follow the trail for about 20 meters to the crag.

Descent notes
