Kamen, seen here from the NE, is a steep-sided stratovolcano of largely Pleistocene age that rises immediately to the north of frequently active Bezymianny volcano (left). The summit of Kamen collapsed about 1,200 years ago, producing a massive debris avalanche to the east, and leaving the steep escarpment that forms the east face of the edifice.  Photo by E.Y.
