Boramae Park is a relatively large park in southern Seoul. The park is a popular place; it is always abuzz with activity. Just about any outdoor recreational activity you could look for is offered here.
Boramae Park played host to events in the 2005 Asian X-Games. As such, it knows how to facilitate activities like rock climbing. Boramae Park's climbing wall is a great place to get a climbing fix. It has a good variety of difficulty when it comes to routes. The staff will also belay if you came alone (for a small fee).
2,000 won will gain you entrance and access to the wall. For 5,000 won, the staff will belay you 2 times.
The wall is open from 10:00 in the morning to 10:00 in the evening.
Feel free to spend some time bouldering. That is no problem.
There is nothing too noteworthy about the actual climbing wall area. However, basketball courts and a skating park are very nearby. They provide a constant buzz or activity in the area which makes for a good vibe.
After spending time on the wall, visit the parks' onsite Cafe Ju. It is staffed by local youth, and all the proceeds are put into local programs benefitting the youth.
Call 010-4733-4496 for more information.
