SAN LLC Climbing Gear
Sanirang Alpine Networks LLC understands how difficult buying gear in Korea can be. We also understand how expensive the necessary basic gear can be in order to learn how to climb, so because of this, SAN LLC rents all of the necessary gear required to join the group outings from head to toe at exceptionally reasonable rates. The basic necessary gear required to ice climb includes: helmet, harness, hard soled ice climbing boots, crampons, ice axes, daisy chain, 2 HMS locking carabiners and a belay device.

For information on rental and rates, refer to this page here: All clients are encouraged to bring their own gear or buy their own gear if possible!

Also, for more information on how to prepare for each outing(e.g. winter clothing), please refer this link:

Rain or Shine Policy
The Climbing School will never cancel despite deteriorating weather conditions. In the event of less than promising weather and SAN deems it to unsafe to climb, sessions will be done at an indoor climbing or bouldering gym where additional bouldering and sport climbing techniques and skills will be taught.
