Hello RCIK members!
We are heading to Bukhansan on May 6th(National Holiday). Our friend Charles Chu will be leading the yeumcho ridge climbing. We think this ridge climbing will take about 6 hours. This route called Yeumchobong provides us with lots of holds, cracks, flakes... to make a long story short: Perfect real-rock climbing conditions!! Ridge climbing provides dangerous feelings of high altitudes and topographical thrills, but requires professional climbing equipment and techniques that are inappropriate for beginners. Due to the risk of danger, beginner are advised to learn about basic use of equipments and climbing techniques first, and even experienced climbers should always be prepared for unpredictable situations.
We ask that only experienced rock climbers, who have their own climbing gear (helmet, harness, belay device set, etc.) sign-up for this group. If you don`t have these with you, the national park ranger will not let you climb. We must also limit the group to 12 climbers for everyone’s safety. If it does turn out to be bad weather this day, then we may have to cancel the trip.
Trail route:Yeumcho 1-2-3 bong- Book rock-Horse rock- Baekwundae(peak)
Where to Meet : Bulgwang stn on line 3&6 (#322 & 612), exit 2 inside

NOTE: Rock Climbing is inherently dangerous. Involvement in rock climbing carries a significant risk of personal injury or death. CLIMB AT YOUR OWN RISK! Always kiss your family good-by before heading out on a climb. (Since CIK will not be held resposible for any injuries that may occur on any hiking trip, we highly recomend that you have your own personal form of medical insurance prior to attending all outtings.).
Hope to See ya there!
