Bizarre! Is it snow?

Wonderful shot...but I can't tell whether that's snow or the natural color and texture of the formation. Is it snow?

Re: Bizarre! Is it snow?

It's a combination of snow and rime ice. This is what it looks like in early summer after most of the ice has fallen off.

Great pic, great ice!

Wouldn't mind to have my axes taste this one day! Absolutely looks a lot better in winter!

This is some serious looking formation. Any good ice climbs up that cliff?

Re: Woohooo

There are quite a few good ice climbs on Illumination Rock. Most of them have been put up by Wayne Wallace, a very strong and experienced Pacific Northwest Ice Climber. The easiest route is fairly difficult, AI3+ on difficult Rhime Ice over Frozen Choss.

Absolutely beautiful!

Wish I could climb up to that point and see that view. There are just so many mind-boggling peaks out west. I can barely wait until my trip out there in 2005.
