Backgroundfrom Smithsonian / GVP volcano information:
The upper part of the 5740-m-high cone is blanketed by pyroclastic material. Two possible pyroclastic-flow lobes extend to the NW and north. Cerro Peinado contains an apron of pristine lava flows extending to 6 km. These were erupted from the main cone and from vents on the flank, including a prominent ESE-flank vent. Cerro Peinado is surrounded by small fields of cinder cones, maars, and pristine lava flows, located along N-S-trending faults, which are related to the Salar de Antofalla volcanic field.
