The dramatic spine in the summit crater of Tequila volcano rises 300 m above the crater floor. The dacitic spine, similar to the one at Sangangüey volcano, has been dated at 210,000 years and occupies a summit depression that is breached to the NE. The spine appears to represent the latest activity from the central vent of Tequila.
