      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Mt Hood - Illumination Rock, South Chamber 7/1/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Hood - Illumination Rock, South Chamber


Date: 7/1/2013


Trip Report:

Nick Till and I braved shitty rock to the West Gable of Illumination yesterday via the South Chamber route.


I've climbed the East Ridge of the south chamber and can say that both have equally repugnant rock quality.


Photos, conditions of the Reid, Leuthold's Etc, may be found here:

We approached on skis and transitioned to rock shoes at the left wall of the chamber. The route is choose-you-own-adventure via lesser-of-two-evils route finding tactics.






Gear Notes:

Single rack to 3, doubles 1-3, more than good. A buckload of slings and rap tat.


Approach Notes:

Skis, left at the mouth of the chamber. Fun corn skiing on the way down.
