The linear group of mostly snow-free pyroclastic cones and associated lava flows right of the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the right) is the southern part of the Olkoviy volcano group. This large group of Pleistocene-to-Holocene basaltic shield volcanoes and pyroclastic cones is named for Olkoviy shield volcano, which lies out of view at the northern end of the volcanic field. Ksudach volcano is partially visible at the far left, and the circular, low-angle, snow-free Ozernoy shield volcano lies above and to its right.
