Coffeepot Rock is one of the most recognized and prominent rock formations in the Sedona Area, featured repeatedly on postcards in every shop in town. As you might expect, it looks like a big... well, coffee pot, from the south.

There are a few routes on the formation, including two hardman jobs (old school 5.11), and the original sort of mountaineering rock route that offers some fun climbing and route finding as you wend your way up the rock.

Getting There 

Provided by Kole:
Park at the Soldier Pass Trail head. Head north down the Soldier Pass jeep road. After a few minutes you'll see Forest Road 9904B on the right and Tea Pot trail on the left. Go left on Tea Pot trail. After a few more minutes look for a small side trail heading right at a group of boulders. This trail will cross a indistinct wash shortly. Go left into this wash and look for a fairly good trail heading toward the nose of Coffee Pot.

Original Route 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c  AZ : *Sedona Area : ... : Coffeepot Rock
A nice casual outing. Not much technical climbing, but fun and the summit has a great view. The cruxes are very short and well protected, so it feels easier than the 5.9 grade. Pitch 1 gets all day shade, the rest of the route is in the sun.P1) 5.8 150' Up the chimney. Longer and more fun than it appears. Save a #4 or #5 Camalot (new sizes) for the top.P2) 5.5 -50' Either rap or down climb to the ledge on the south side of the formation.P3) Class 1 50' Hike around the corner to...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
