Ipala rises about 750 m above the floor of the Ipala graben. The edifice extends nearly across the full width of the graben. The cone to the right is Monte Rico on the southern flank. The eastern flank contains a 17 km NNE-SSW-trending vent that produced a line of Holocene scoria cones and lava flows out of view to the right.
