Background

A large breached crater on the WNW side was formed by a large debris avalanche that occurred within the past 500,000 years and left a large hummocky deposit in the plain at the W and NW feet the volcano.
Post-collapse volcanic activity formed the White Rock andesitic lava dome inside the collapse scar.
