Background:

Diamond Peak, a basaltic-andesite shield volcano, dominates the Willamette Pass area. Capped by a pyroclastic cone, Diamond Peak probably erupted in the last 100,000 years. but is older than the last glaciation at about 11,000 years (Sherrod, in Wood and Kienle 1990). An older shield volcano, Mt. Yoran, lies to the NNE and the Diamond Rockpile and Crater Butte cinder cones lie to the south.
