Partner Wanted for South Korea

Hello! I'll be traveling through Korea in April-May, and I'm looking for partners to climb with. I mostly sport climb but would be down to boulder! My climbing grades are around v8 and 5.12c.

Hi, I will be arriving in Seoul on the 16th May. Also looking for a partner. I mainly sport climb 6a / 6b and project 6c.

I'll be there a bit later in your trip, but I hope we can climb together. In the meantime let me know how the climbing goes there.

Hey there! Does anyone know if there is a guidebook for climbing in South Korea? Currently looking for more information around Seoul. Thanks!

There's a book called Climb. Google "climb rock climbing in korea guidebook pdf” . The first result should give you a free download of the book.

Good way to connect is using the Facebook Groups Climbing Hub Korea or Busan Climbers - with some luck Dong-il Ryou will reply - the "godfather" of Korean climbing and author of the book mentioned above - he's very eager to help and connect people typically - enjoy climbing in Korea, it is just amazing!

Thank you so much for the info! Found the guidebook, hoping to climb Insubong. One step closer!

Mikey Song When will you be in Korea?

Mikey Song replied 5 weeks ago.

Approximately 28th December, 2024. For 2-3weeks. I'm currently living in Tasmania, Australia.

Mikey Song That's gonna be mid winter mate. I believe that there will be some ice climbing in Korea.

Otherwise, I would think a south facing crag on a sunny day in the south, say near to Busan would be the way to go for rock.
