What you'll do
Totally beginner friendly, you will learn the basics of climbing safety and technique at a local bouldering gym in the lively Hongdae area with an experienced instructor in a small, intimate group. There are plenty of climbs in different styles suitable for all levels so for all you gung-ho types, there'll be no shortage of challenging walls for you! You'll quickly see why climbing is great, not only as a full body workout but also as a workout for your mind. Puzzle your way through different types of problems and experience the satisfaction of completing a climb you initially thought to be impossible~ Along with coaching on tips/techniques, I can also provide an insider's look at the inner workings of a climbing center and creating routes as well as the difference between indoor and outdoor climbing ;)

Rock climbing is truly a passion of mine! I was a climbing coach and safety instructor as well as a route setter at an indoor climbing center for 3 years in Toronto before moving to Korea to teach English (3 years ago). I continue to climb recreationally and would love to share my knowledge and passion with others. I am also a huge foodie and would be happy to show guests nice local restaurants in the area (outside of your typical fried chicken or street food) after our climbing experience!

Where you'll be
Our experience will take place in Hongdae! This lively, bustling area is popular among locals and foreigners alike. Our climbing center is located off the main road but easily missed, being on the second floor of the building. We will be meeting at Hongik University subway station (Line 2), Exit 1 (outside, right in front of Shoopen shoe store) before proceeding to the climbing center.
