Ushkovsky volcano (formerly known as Plosky) is a large compound volcanic massif located at the NW end of the Kliuchevskaya volcano group. Seen here from the NW, it consists of the flat-topped 3943-m-high Ushkovsky volcano (far right), which is capped by an ice-filled 4.5 x 5.5 km caldera, and the adjacent higher peak of 4108-m Krestovsky volcano (center). Numerous cinder cones dot its flanks. The volcano has been active during the Holocene, with the last eruption of the summit cone occurring in 1890. Photo by E.Y.
