Geologists walk toward Griggs volcano from the base of Knife Creek Glacier to its south. Active fumarole fields persist in the summit crater and along the upper SW flank, and can be heard from the valley floor. The flanks of Griggs and the surface of Knife Creek Glacier have thick ash deposits from the 1912 Novarupta eruption.
