Description

Treehouse Jam features steep crack climbing in a range of sizes through a neat little variety of Sedona rock. It leads to the summit of Lookout Tower via the far right crack system on the north face.

Pitch 1: Take the path of least resistance through 30 feet of cruddy rock (5.6; good pro). Your reward is a perfect handcrack highway to the two-bolt anchor beside the honeycomb. (5.9, 60 feet)

Pitch 2: Thrutch up the honeycomb offwidth (5.10) and catch your breath on a sandy ledge. Bust a wild traverse left on slopers past two bolts and pull the roof (crux, maybe .10+ or .11-) where twin finger cracks merge into a hand crack. Belay on the ledge in the back corner crack with 3-4" cams. One 5.7 offwidth move separates you from the summit. (5.11-, 60 feet)

Walk over to the northwest corner of the tower and rappel Wash Off Tan. A 70m rope will get down in one go; a 60m will need the intermediate station.

Location

North face, far right crack system. Look for the first belay anchors next to the honeycomb halfway up.

Protection

Single rack to 4"
Two 5" cams
One 70m rope or two 60m ropes
