Heirloom is a splitter handcrack of exceptional quality for Sedona. The bottom half is right out of the Creek with bomber jams and heroic roof pulls. The top half throws a bit of everything at you, with several intriguing moves through a variety of sizes.

Start at the base of the obvious clean-cut corner, using a dubious flake to establish yourself in the handcrack. Jam your way up the corner and launch over a set of cubic roofs. Continue up the crack as it flares and passes through a variety of sizes, bringing you to a nice ledge with a two-bolt chain anchor.


Genetic Wall is divided by gullies into three parts. On the middle formation, Heirloom is the very obvious splitter handcrack in a clean right-facing corner.


Double rack to 3" + one #4
+ extra 2, 3 (optional)

Super fun. Felt well protected with double .4-3 and a single 4. 85' rap. No need to do the step across... just climb straight up to the fist/ hand crack on a few face features.

Lots of shade for a quick outing on summer mornings, or lots of sun for a nice winter afternoon. May 20, 2017

For newer 5.10 trad leaders like me, I recommend taking the optional pieces listed in the pro. Classic route! Feb 12, 2018
