Southeastern face of Ilú-tepui as seen from Karaurín-tepui
|Elevation||2,700 m (8,900 ft)|
The Ilú–Tramen Massif is a tepui massif in Bolívar state, Venezuela. It forms part of the Eastern Tepuis chain and comprises two major plateaus: the larger Ilú-tepui (also spelled Uru) to the south and Tramen-tepui to the north. With a maximum elevation of around 2,700 metres (8,900 ft), Ilú-tepui is the taller of the two peaks. Both tepuis have open, rocky summit plateaus, with a combined summit area of 5.63 km2 (2.17 sq mi). They lie just north of Karaurín-tepui.
Tramen Tepui (2,700 m) was first climbed by Scharlie Wraight and Stephen Platt from the col between Ilu Tepui and Tramen Tepui on 24 November 1981.
