Fresh-looking lava flows drape the southern flanks of the compound volcano of Cerro el Cóndor, one of the few large stratovolcanoes located entirely in Argentina. The summit complex lies within a 2.5-km-wide caldera and contains several ash cones and craters that have been the source of a number of pristine lava flows that have descended to beyond the flanks of the volcano. The morphologically youthful lava flows and pristine summit crater imply a Holocene age.
