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

Classic multi-pitch sport route on chossy limestone. P1- first two moves are burly then mostly 5.8 to a seated belay in a cave. P2- traverse out right to an exposed 10c move on the roof and on to another seated belay in the shade. P3- sustained 11a climbing with burly moves on good enough holds. Stay left and up. Good exposure. Many aid here (goes 10c on aid) and ladders are sufficient. Rappel and enjoy the view....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
