This month's DOD

Day of Discovery (DOD) is about being active in the great outdoors. This month's DOD is Gyerongsan rock climbing iGuideKoreaall about granite rock climbing. You'll be using your legs, core and arms to pull and push your way up the large cliffs of Sinsun-am in Joryeong-san. (Google maps opens in a new tab).

The granite cliffs have slabs and cracks that are common features of higher alpine-like climbing. The grandeur and remoteness adds to the cliff's allure, and with moderate routes for novices and intermediate climbers, Sinsun-am is a great adventure destination.

After an exciting day of climbing, we continue the outdoor experience with remote camping. When the sun goes down the campfires and marshmallows come out! We'll gather around the warm fire and share stories of the day.
