The andesitic Shisheika lava dome, seen here from the west, lies far to the west of the crest of the Sredinny Range, near the mouth of the Shishei River. The eruption occurred ~4000 years ago. It started as a minor explosive eruption that dispersed tephra to ~20 km from the source. The flanks of the whole edifice are host rocks uplifted due to lava intrusion.
