Flow ridges accentuate the surface of a sparsely vegetated lava flow originating from the Veer ("Fan") cinder cone (middle right) in the Levaya Avacha ("Left Avacha") river valley. Veer is one of a number of cones scattered throughout the Avacha river basin. This eruption took place 1600-1700 years Before Present (BP), as suggested by the stratigraphic position of its erupted products between the OP (1500 years BP) and KS1 (1800 years BP) marker ash layers from Opala and Ksudach volcanoes, respectively.
