We climbed another mountain quite close to our apartment. It's known as 'Sapaesan' . We'd climbed this one a few times before in the summer, but this was the first time in some snow and ice. I had to wear some chains on my climbing boots.
Sapaesan is the most northern peak of a very well known mountain ridgeline commonly called Dobongsan. It's not the highest peak on the ridgeline, but being the farthest north, you get some good views. There are a few different trails to the top. We mostly use the easiest one, known as the 'Angol' entrance. However, it's not close to any subway station and takes a bit of walking to arrive at the entrance. Let me know if you want directions to access this entrance.
I plan to get a lot more photos and info about Dobongsan on this blog in the future as we climb it some more.
This first picture is close to where we first entered.
