Conjecture: sequence a(n) is finite for n = natural number, a(n) = 25 for n = infinity. See A175424.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..4.

a(n) = min {j : A175425(j) = n}.

a(4) = 33 because 33 is the smallest numbers with 4 steps of defined iteration: 3^3 = 27, 7^2 = 49, 9^4 = 6561, ((1^6)^5)^6 = 1.

Cf. A175419 - A175427.
