Parts of Barracuda are climbed by a few different routes/link ups:
Concrete Jungle (13c) starts to the left of Barracuda, on Urban Surfer, and finishes with Barracuda's upper crux.
Cold War (14a) starts on Barracuda, climbs through the corner crux, and then heads out left onto Urban and its long upper crux, thereby avoiding Barracuda's top move.
Catch and Release (13b) starts on Barracuda, climbs through the corner crux, and then takes a hard right to Maui Wowie's anchors.
Super Urban (13d/14a) climbs Barracuda to the Slam Dunk Move and then moves immediately left into Urban Surfer.

|Another fun but silly linkup would be Cold Sub (13c) which climbs Cold War to Suburban's anchor.|

|As an alternative to chucking off the left hand pinch all the way to the lip of the cliff, look up left to a quartz block a foot below the top. There is a sidepull crimp on the upper right of this block to use as a intermediate.|

|Great route description! Easier beta for the slam dunk move is to heel hook by your left hand and reach the jug statically with your left hand. I would recommend anyone wanting to try send Barracuda to send Concrete first and be able to do the final crux with your eyes closed.|
