With over 30 areas, and over 100 crags, this state is third largest in population and area, though may be second to Bavaria for amount of available climbing.

There are three major areas which are listed to the left. Of which, the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) holds the most areas, and maybe the most gummi-bears.

The ancient hot spring spas of Baden-Baden are a major tourist attraction in Baden-Württemberg, as well as Lake Konstanz. Lake Konstanz (Bodensee), is a swelling of the Rhein, due to being trapped in a tectonic basin. Two important rivers lie in BW: the source of the Danube(Donau)river, and the falls of the Rhine lie a mere 27 miles from eachother. They are separated by the continental divide, the Rhein flowing to the north sea, and the Danube flowing to the Black Sea.

For people who can read decent German, the German Alpine Association (DAV) has an excellent Crag map with TONS of info

Climb up the southwest corner of the wall of the tower. There are the 4 bolts, but with some of the bricks being polished out and others coming loose it can get run out. Side pull of the corner on the right and you'll get past the crux over the second bolt, then use some big reaches to finish off the last couple of moves and top out. You'll need a long runner to be able to set up a top rope from the anchor site at the top of the wall. View is rediculously good and you are storming a damn castle ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
