These are the remains of the old cone, which was destroyed by explosion of enormous power, which occurred very recently in geologic terms – about 45 thousand years ago. Was demolished one and half vertex of the cone. Formed a huge crater, discovered in the south-west direction. Volcanic bombs weighing tens of tons are located at a distance of 25-30 kilometers from the center of the eruption.
