Summary

Massive granite peak right outside of Seoul. On weekends it gets very busy so be prepared for large crowds of people on the easier/classic routes.

Description

Routes are primarily slab and cracks with a few face and chimney climbs in between. Climbs range from one to eight pitches. The highest graded route is My Way(5.12b).

Access issues

Korean National Park -- No smoking in the park and no open fires.

Approach

Take the UI-Sinseol line to Bukhansan Ui Station. Come out of Exit #2 go up the hill until you find taxis waiting on the side of the road. These taxis take people to the trailhead for 2000won per person and typically wait until full. The hike from the trailhead is about half an hour to an obvious ranger station. From the ranger station, hike up and above the hermitage on the right. There is a small trail that goes around the hermitage and continues up past some boulders to the base of Insubong. The hike up from the ranger station to the base of Insubong is rougly twenty minutes.
