Description 

Urban Assault is a chossy limestone wall aprroximately 90ft high and is the highest wall in the Greenbelt. The wall is located on an open bend in the creek. Hot and exposed in the summer, it is a great cool weather climb. In the summer it gets few visitors with the exception of a few hikers and small groups of climbers headed to Gus Fruh.

Getting There 

This wall is located on the east side of the creek on a bend between Gus Fruh and Seismic walls. The approach varies depending on entry point. Easiest access is the south office building entrance. From 71 head north on 360. As soon as you have turned onto 360 look right for a large office building. As you enter the office complex turn left and you will see the Barton Creek Greenbelt sign. From here follow the hiking trail right and hug the creek for approximately 10 minutes before it drops down onto the dry creek. Continue walking approximately 5 more minutes to Urban Assault

Starfish 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  TX : Barton Creek Greenbelt : Urban Assault Wall
Classic. One of Austin's most technical routes. Climb the 60ft face to a large hueco near the roof for a great break. Then climb out the big 15ft roof crack and top out. As of December 2012 all the bolts (except bolts #1 and #2) are permadraws. Most likely the biggest exposure around....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
