A view from below of one of the most difficult climbs the gym has to offer
A few days ago, I had the opportunity to give one of my old favorite childhood sports a go again; rock climbing. If you've never gone rock climbing before, you may imagine it to be a really dangerous sport where people risk their lives to scale mountain faces, but in reality it's a very fun, safe sport when done correctly. Now, most people don't have the time to be scaling mountain cliffs all the time, but for those who want to practice this sport, the best place to do it is in a rock gym. We found Dyno Wall in Suyu on line 4 in the northern part of Seoul. It's operated by The North Face and is on the 4th floor of The North Face store in Suyu.
