No one had ever been able to get beyond its (Troy's) huge, soaring stone walls.

Hi,
Does the second sound as good as the first and mean about the same? Thanks.

No, the second does not sound good. 'Get' does not carry the restricted meanings of mode of access that your other words do.

Thanks, Mister.

What about the "soaring" part? Is it the same as "extremely high/tall?" Thanks again.

Yes, that's right.
