This one comes with a very nice vid.

Looks like the summit intercrater cinder cone has almost filled the crater (the old crater rim is visible as a ring of arrested blocks below the jet point during the strombolian explosions part of the vid.

Also shows a very nice view of the kamen late pleistocene stratovolcano, which was (prior to the initiation & growth of Kliuchevskoi) the highest volcano in Kamchatka. The avalanche scarp on the upper SE flank is definitely visible in the snowscape on this vid. Kamen remains absent from the Smithsonian GVW picture database following its makeover. As it is confirmed as late Pleistocene with Holocene eruptions emergent @ Bezymianny it may vanish soon from the Smithsonian GVP database.

Have a nice day: Ag
