Wow. . . so back to Munsusan during the week-- Dave sent his 11d project 4th try! I belayed his last two tries. . .a bit dramatic on the send-- pulling up rope, dropping it, yelling for me to "take" but just the slack (he was above the bolt!!) but an awesome send, and he deserved the rest-day Thursday. I spent a few work-days at the crags, and visited the gyms in town. Oh Haeng-sun, whom we met last weekend, met me one evening for a chat/workout. I'll have to talk to her when I return to Ulsan. Her English is decent, and as of last month, she's the first woman climbing gym manager (I know of) in Korea!! I couldn't believe she's 49! She looks absolutely amazing, no older than me, and she climbs hard 11s!! probably some 12's!

Sat I headed out to Miryang, picking up Ian and Marissa there, and heading to Bueongsae Rock, for some long steep stuff. . . well, the easier stuff that I tried wasn't as long, and dang it was cold and sunless! On the way back to Daegu, it rained, but I have a lot to do this week in Daegu before heading to Wonju (early) for the Meet and Greet!

I am kinda sick of these cold, sunless days!! And the rainy weekends. . . GRRR. I need good photos!!

So no major happenings this week, except being on the periferal of dramas (not unlike Busan!) that do not include me!! Unfortunately, I don't really have the time or energy to "help" my friend in Busan, and I am trying to be in the none-of-my-business mode in Ulsan. . . that said, spending time with a (newly)-21 year old from Ohio has been enlightening, and fun in small doses!

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion

- drawn the lines

- write names and grades (an example…
