Two crags in the town of Baden serve as after-work hangouts / easiest access areas for Zurich area climbers. The rock is not great, the routes are not many... but when you got to get out, they work!

In both areas the bolting is generally quite good, with many bolts replaced recently.

The limestone of the Jura is a risk for belayers as much as for climbers, and wearing a helmet when on the ground is highly recommended.

Getting There
