If you can't make it to Camp 4 in Yosemite National Park, the climbing wall in Unjeong Health Park is not a bad place to settle. In all actuality, the Unjeong Health Park climbing facilities are terrible when compared to climbing in Yosemite. However, that should not stop you from climbing here if you live east of Seoul and are looking for a place to go rock climbing.
The great thing about this place is that not only is the facility pretty sweet, but it is also completely FREE. The one catch is that you must register with the park before climbing. Other than that, it is low-maintenance, no-frills, quality climbing.
The rock climbing walls are open from 9:30 to 7:30 from April until October. During November, February, and March, the walls are open from 11:00 to 5:00. They are closed in December and January.
Climbing with a partner is a requisite. Using the wall by yourself is not permitted (neither is it smart).
Call 031-940-5234 for more information.

From Jungang-Gyeongui Line: Unjeong Station (운정역):
-Unjeong Station is the nearest subway station, but it is not exactly near. It is still quite a distance between the park and the station. If you wish to get to the park from the subway station take a look at the map below and use it to navigate the routes.
