Part of the summit complex of Gorely is seen in this view from the S. It was constructed within a large caldera and contains 11 summit and 30 flank craters. Historical eruptions, largely consisting of moderate Vulcanian and phreatic explosions, have commonly produced ash plumes that are visible from Petropavlovsk, Kamchatka's largest city.
